    My first sculpey attempt - Imperious Leader

    I've wanted to try using sculpey for awhile and bought myself a box and some of the plastic tools. I figured a big lizard-looking space alien robot to go with the rest of the Galactica figures was a good subject to start with. I wanted to make it look like a cross between the screen version and the Mattel '78 figure, but I think I will paint him the TV show colors and not pink and purple like Mattel.

    Looks good, though I wonder about the weight. That must be why he's always seated!

    For really big sculpts I use foil or some other filler in the middle so it won't be so heavy. Nice work. Your first time sculpting or just using Sculpey?

    Thanks! I've repainted heads before, but never tried sculpting or sculpey I do have a big foil ball in the middle of his head, but even just covering the outside, he is heavier than I thought he would be. Here is the Imperious Leader painted and I also draped in front of him the fabric I bought today. Sewing his robe will be a project for next weekend. Kinda looks more like Big Bird meets Battlestar, but I'm happy with it.
