L Holding Misa Cell charm by snoday L Holding Misa Cell charm by snoday
L (a.k.a. Ryuzaki, a.k.a. Hideki Ryuga) from Death Note. He stole Misa's cell phone! ;O I'm actually kinda proud of this one. His head shape is a little off, and his hair is a little off, but I like him. ^.^ I also made a Light one, and a Ryuk one (that ended up being too big).

Made with: SuperFlex Sulpey (rubber clay... it's not real bendy, but enough to get them in the bottle without breaking a single hair)

You have to bake them for a looooooong time before they break. They would burn and turn brown or black before that would happen. It says bake at 285 for 15 min., but I've left them in for up to an hour and a half before with no problems. In fact, if you bake them in stages (like 15 min., let them cool, another 15 min., and so on) it makes them stronger.

If you're still worried about it, one thing I used to do when I first started out was just put a couple tiny scraps on clay in there beside my figures. When you think they might be done, try poking the scrap with the side of a toothpick. (It will leave a little bit of a mark 'cus the clay's still hot, but if the mark is minimal, it's done.) After it cools, you can even try bending it until it breaks to get an idea of how durable your figures will be.

In my experience, if your figures DO break, it's usually at a seam (like where the head meets the body). Those parts are easily glued.

Yes, I'd love to see them. Thanks. If you keep making things too big, try measuring out your clay ahead of time. Measure how much you think you'll need... then cut that amount in half. Or 1/4 if you think you can handle it. :)

I don't know. I've never sold one before that I already had made. I'd have to find him and see what kind of condition he's in.

Sorry, there's a lot going on right now. It'll be a while. I might not get around to it until this quarter's over at the end of March. Normally I just let people make me an offer, and if I think it's fair I take it. (Including shipping, I've taken anywhere from $35 to $95.) He's not my best work though, and I don't know what condition he's in or where he is right now. It might be best to just get ahold of me at a later date.

If you click specials, they have a 40% off coupon. I don't think they sell things on the website though. Maybe you could find the closest store, call them, and see if they could ship it?

Ehh... I'd rather you didn't....

Ryuk was the first. He was going to be in a bottle, but he was too big. This one [link] is my smallest. I was thinking about making a Mello to throw in there with him, but I'm afraid I won't get them the same size.

Actually I made the Light and L in the bottles in about 45 minutes (not including bake time). But yes, it does take a lot of patience. If you mess up, you have to be willing to sit there and try to fix it instead of just smooshing it. (Though I have smooshed things before. I try not to.)

I usually make the part that needs attached and then use a toothpick or a needle to attach it. Sometimes arms or legs aren't quite the same size or shape and you have to take them back off in order to fix it. Or sometimes when trying to do the hair the body gets all smooshed just from you holding it. Or the head gets misshapen (which happened with Light) and you have to cut off the extra in the back and reshape it without messing up the face or something. Or you get something perfect, but you accidently got it stuck to your desk instead of the pan you're baking it on. x.x (These are made of rubber sculpey, but if you use regular sculpey, you have to be careful even after baking or small parts will break off. :( The L in the Bathtub one had about 1/3 of his hair break off so far. I think I'll use the rubber sculpey for hair from now on, even if the rest is normal sculpey.) The worst thing is when (because our apartment is so hot) you try to take something back off, it's melted into the other parts and you pretty much have to just scrap it.

Sorry for the long reply. :P
