you really should have posted this in your wip thread



is it oil based clay?

and as for a wet towel i would recommend using cling wrap but before you wrap it maybe a thin spray of water

forgive me for being australian but its the thin plastic stuff to wrap food in?

hopefully you get what i mean , and also if it where OIL based clay if im correct i dont think it will crack due to techincally never drying just keep it covered over though when you are not working on it

nevermind, i know what clingwrap is now, but, if i used that, all detail would be pressed out

yeh but you might have to do a complete new one but make sure its oil based clay so when its molded it doesn't interfere in the curing process

Looks like a good sculpt, what I would recommend is either try to seal the cracks with a little bit of clay in the cracks, or you may have to start over with red (oil based) clay.

It's clay, man. If there's a crack, smudge it closed!



If you're using water based clay (why?) just fill the cracks in with some more.

Just lightly wrap the sculpt, no need to press. Or you could put your sculpt in a garbage bag, and rubberband the bag closed. The goal is to keep the moisture that is evaporated off the clay in an enclosed space, so it can be re-absorbed by the clay. (Imagine a glue bottle; the glue will never dry unless you leave the cap off.)

Get some really wet clay and fill the gaps. and make sure to wet it every so often, light sponging helps. and put a bag over it to trap moisture.
