Hiya folks, While clay sales are slow, I've been easing back into animating, bringing back the old sick and twisted style I was known for a few years ago (just because it's fun). To kick things…Continue
Hi folks, My friend and loyal customer Martin Gutierrez Beheran animated this short using Puppet Putty to create all the characters. He says this is his second film, but his first time doing a…Continue
This is exactly the kind of aesthetic I've always hoped to see in Lego-style animation. Look how SMOOTH it is! After studying it frame by frame, it is apparent that this is not 30fps on a mix of ones…Continue
"Most other airdry foamclays that I tested will start cracking a lot sooner. I try to prolong the curring time by adding babyoil or glyserol and cover it with a good spray, of transparent matte cardip. But it would be great if we could find or figure…"
"I is no pro aramature maker but if FLXIBLE DRY CLAY is anything like the current "scumvorks" light clay, air-dry foam here in the U.K., (real cheap aimed at kids,) it is great for rigid parts cladding. That's about it. Easy to shape,…"
