The Steps of Myxie Making

Good Day all,
I am steadily working on new Myxies for the up coming SiFi Convention Dragon Con. I have already got a few completely sculpted and baked and just have a couple more to finish. While I’m working on them I thought you all might enjoy seeing how my little creations get made.
I start off with a long piece of craft wire. I then twist the wire in certain places where it needs to be more sturdy such as the upper arms, legs and the torso. Then I cover the wire with polymer Clay around the torso and thighs and mold it in the shape I want. Using rubber tipped tools I sculpt the details before adding the legs and arms.
I then sculpt the feet separate and slide them on the wire. After the feet are attached I CAREFULLY bend the whole thing to the position I want. I left out the steps where I mess up and yell and whine profusely….but that is a major step in making a Myxie :P
There are a few more steps before it is complete but I will post them later. For now here are a few photos to show you what I’m talking about.
