So for this next piece I wanted a fiercer looking shelled creature. I started the armature early in the day.
While the Aves Apoxie Sculpt clay was curing I sculpted the shell out of Super Sculpey firm clay.
When the Aves clay had cured I sculpted the interior of the mouth in polymer clay and added the pre-baked fangs.
I decided to give this guy a spiked tail club for offense against shelled members of his own kind.
After the shell was baked I pressed it down onto the soft Aves clay to mark where it would be glued.
The creature at his fangy best!
