Sculpting Tutorial [see also Head Sculpting Tutorial] by ~Kurokono -- Suggester's words: Both tutorials are easy to read, filled with practical tips, and have plenty of great photos/imagery. The artist put a lot of thought into their tutorials and it really shows. ( Suggested by Cecify and Featured by FantasyStock )

as I do for super sculpey not to be so hard and with this color?
Is the temp in Celsius or Fahrenheit? Because I can't get my oven to go that low and my little guy is ready to bake.

The temperatures shown here are all Celsius. You really don't need a lot of heat to bake super sculpey.
how do you color your sculpt?

I have not yet made a coloring tutorial since the method I use is not available for all fellow artists.
I do my paint work with a Badger Patriot airbrush, it is by far the best way to do your coloring.

I got an important question, i just got over my sculpture with turpentine (the clay is still soft) and i left it on air for about 1 day. Now i question is, if the sculpture still smells like turpentine is it dangerous to put in in the oven? If not, once i bake the sculpture will it still smell like turpentine? And is there a chance that  once  the sculpture is baked, will the oven smell like turpentine?
SgtMilenko Oct 12, 2013  Student General Artist
It's common for the sculpture to smell of turpentine even days after you've processed it. This might not be too appealing, but it is completely normal.
If the turpentine is non-flammable, you can bake the sculpture normally. Since this is your first time using turpentine, I would strongly recommend you keep a close eye on the sculpture while it's in the oven.
I have never had turpentine go wrong for me, but I would watch out for any signs of burning, bubbling or cracking.

The sculpture should not smell of turpentine once it comes out of the oven. It will however, have a distinctive smell to it once it's completely baked (not due to the turpentine, but the clay itself), but this will dissipate quite quickly.
No harm will come to the oven, nor will it smell like turpentine after you are done baking.

Sorry for the late reply.

Thanks! Actually i have flammable one and i've put it in the oven and nothing happened :D
Once again, thanks for the answer :D.

That's good to hear! Turpentine should be safe no matter what, but it doesn't hurt to be safe.

I liked your tutorial very much and I'd like to translate your tutorial into Russian, so that people from Russian-speaking countries can also make such beautiful things. May I translate it?
I'll write that it's your tutorial and give a link on this page of course!
