Totoro and Chibi (paper clay sculpture)

Hello guiseee, how are you all doing? So recently I have been working on Totoro and Chibi's sculptures and it was pretty tough I tell you! For this project, I use paper clay that I bought from the bookstore. You can make the clay by yourself tho. It's easy. Few ingredients need to be mixed together and there you have it, your very own clay. But since I am a lazy kind of person, so I just bought it. And as you can see down below, those are the pictures of Totoro and Chibi that I made using paper clay.

It was hard to sculpt these two adorable creatures at first. It became a little bit too droopy and it looks hideous. But after a few tryouts, I somehow managed to get the perfect shape for these two (that's what I thought, at least). And the second hard part was to find the right colour of Totoro. For the darker part, I mix these three colours (black, white and a little bit of chocolate). Hence for the belly, I use flesh tint, yellow and white colour. This time, use acrylic paint so that you will get a nice shiny effect. So yeah...I think that's pretty much it. So what are you waiting for? Go and make one! :)
