How did you get the paint to be so smooth?

AleximusPrime Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It's actually not smooth at all on these customs. I do much better with paint jobs nowadays and the key is to use a bit of water with the paint or it will come off rather goopy and have a texture when it's done.

Thanks, they look smooth, though. I'm a bit of a beginner, so I'm trying to get some good advice.

What clay did you use?
If it was Sculpey, how did you get it to stick on the ponies? Did you bake the ponies wit the clay on them? If so, how long and what temperature?
Thanks! :iconpartycannonplz:

Well I didn't take it off after baking them but nowadays I take it off and then paint the pony if need be and then I glue it on.

Thanks for the offer but I'm only sending my customs to people who win one on eBay once I get that started up and running. Not saying I dont' trust you, but I don't know you well enough yet to get into such a partnership. Thanks anyway. :)

They are good, but to me there are a few things that don't grab me as much as the other Lyra/BonBon customs.

You haven't seen them from every angle. I'm glad EqD featured it but they shoulda waited till I got the more detailed pics up.

TAGMAN007 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well it's not that, like I aid they're realy good but to me that wasn't what I was saying.

It was mainly these:
-BonBon's tail and mane aren't poofy/big enough.(Just me sayin')

-the side of Bonbon's mane looks too long (again that's just me)

-BonBon too yellow, she's needs to be more cream colored.

-And Lyra I thin think should've been more rounder (piknie Pie) shape.(AGAIN! just me)

You're not going to see how poofy it is from this angle.

That's how long it was in the vector image I was using as reference.

True but I've already been told that...

More rounder? How is Pinkie more rounder? She's got the same body type as everyone else and all the toys have that same body type too. :confused:

Again, you might wanna save your judging for when I have a pic of them shown from ALL angles.

When I meant rounder, I meant rounder eyes for Lyra. Sorry I forgot to say that:XD:. I'm excited to see the future photos.

I coulda made Lyra's eyes rounder I guess but the unicorn heads are all molded to accept the shame of Rarity's eyes.

Really good! Also a question- when the hair finishes baking, is it like rock or like plastic? Is it brittle or does it hold strong?
Reply
:iconaleximusprime:
AleximusPrime Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
As soon as it comes out it is still sorta soft and flexible so don't handle it. After cooling, it is pretty solid but fragile and can break and snap easily so be careful when handling it. Using Mod Podge on it makes it a tad bit more flexible and durable, but you still gotta be careful, especially with thin parts.

Urgh. Okay, then that type of clay won't do. I need something of higher grade. I guess a cast-and-mold of polyutherane or something like that is my best bet. This is going to take weeks.

That may be, but I need to be able to throw this at a wall and not have it shatter into a hundred pieces, that's the problem.

Lyra looks great, but Bon Bon looks amazing!

I'm guessing their shiny because of Mod Podge? How do you apply that anyway?
Reply

AleximusPrime Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, it's matte Mod Podge but it works like glossy for some reason.

I just use a paint brush.

Actually, her coat color is beige. I've taken an eyedropper tool to her color and compared it with the colors given by wikipedia, and beige is the closest match.

I used the color she is by mixing up yellow with white.

I see, it just looked a little off because it wasn't as light as I thought it would be. I saw a lot of bon-bon customs that color yellow so I guess it really is hard to make her exact color from yellow.
