Immortal Spirit angles by Meadowknight Immortal Spirit angles by Meadowknight
Finished! And up for sale VERY soon :). This is my latest pendant design, it will be corded between the wings and crimped with a glass crow bead. Please check out my gallery for more photos, for size, etc.

I sculpted this out of Supersculpey Firm, and I'll be molding and casting duplicates in resin to sell as soon as the supplies I ordered arrive. The price will be $30.00 plus $5.00 shipping and handling to anywhere in the world. Please feel free to leave a comment here, or send me a note if you have any questions :)!

The phoenix is possibly my favorite of the mythological creatures. The general features are stunning, and the metaphors tied to it are beautiful. I did my best to capture that in this piece, trying to weave the feathers into the fiery shape the wings form, with the head and claws in a assertive position mid flight.

This piece is Copyright 2010 Angela Pileggi (AKA AMP, Meadowknight). This sculpt has "(C) 2010" and "AMP" engraved discretely on the side of it's tail, as my personal signature, and to mark the time it was made :).

Supersculpey is SUPER ;D, lol. Naw naw...well it is super. The difference I've noticed, is it's just a better material all around. Though it has a slight transparency to it that makes it difficult to see detail work. It's a better texture and consistency, and it's a LITTLE less fragile than regular sculpey. For fine detail work though, Supersculpey Firm is the best if you're going to use anything Sculpey brand (the very hard gray supersculpey).

Thanks so much! :D

Yeah, the pink Supersculpey is really nice stuff. I wish they'ed come out with one that's a little more firm but not as firm as the gray supersculpey. My only problem with the pink stuff is it's hard to see detail work.

I would love to, but I don't know how, and doubt I could afford that, lol.

You use resin right? cold casting is just mixing metal powders into the first outer layer of the mold then fill with regular resin. You could sell your creations for more since its technically metal!

Oooow....

Can you recommend a good place to buy metal powders? I've come across some for sale...but just haven't tried it. Do you mix the powders WITH the resin? And then just sorta brush it into the mold before filling the rest?

I cast with resin, or a polyurethane plastic...so it should work I think? I use a two part type of resin..since I don't own a scale or any type of degassing chamber. If you have a link to any place that sells the powders, that would be cool :). I may not be able to afford it for a while though...I assume it's expensive.

Are the pieces made that way pretty sturdy?? It seems like they would be....or does it weaken it being mixed with such a different compound? (for example..would a cold cast piece be strong than resin or just as strong? or less strong?)

Thanks for your help/suggestion!

Smooth -on makes everything that you can use. Not cheap but your work is worth it and you can sell 200% more for what you've created. Your work have High quality marked over it so the materials should match it.
