Random Favourites tagged me! 

Where would you like to travel to? Why?
I'd love to go to Seoul to visit my great-aunt and extended family, but i want my mom to go with me, so I'm not sure it's financially in the near future.

    2.      Name a small pleasure. Something small that makes you really happy!  Like putting on microwaved warm socks on cold days XD!!!!
Constant Comment tea.  I actually buy it in bulk now.

    3.      What’s your most favorite thing about your dolls? [or another art form if you’re not a doll person]
 I think my favorite thing is that they exist at all.  They're such an odd idea, I was so surprised and excited the first time my friend showed me them.

    4.      What’s the weirdest question a stranger has asked you?
Probably the first time someone just blatantly asked my mom and I what we were.  they meant our ethnicity, but up until that point I never thought our ethnicity was in question and I felt like a space alien.

    5.      Name 1 thing that you feel makes you unique! [yes I know it’s cheesy ^-^!]
I have ridiculously strong fingernails.

    6.      If you could have one other art related talent, assuming you’d have no limitations (space, money, tools, etc…) what would it be?
I wish I was a better painter. :/  I'm kind of bad at it.

    7.      If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
If teleporters existed so I could go see my folks whenever, I'd want to live in Tochigi, Japan.  My best friend lives there now and I just really liked it there.  It's quiet and clean and laid back.  Everyone was pretty friendly and you can catch the train to tokyo for $20 round trip.

    8.      If you had 1 day left, and one project to finish, what would it be?
One day on earth? Screw the project, I want to see my family. XD  But if I could finish one project right now it'd be my comic.

    9.      If I told you is was okay to steal, what item would you steal? (just one, and it can’t be robbing a bank, it has to be 1 item that’s not for the purpose of resale)
Man, I don't know. Other than maybe a gallon of silicone because I'm out and I'd love to have some more but I can't afford it right now!

    10.  If you had to choose a place and time in history aside from now to live in, where and when would it be? Why?

 I'd go back to the early 1990's, punch my fifth grade teacher in the ovaries, and then go invest all the technology companies that sprang up before the dot-com collapse.

i have question for you. where do you get the silcone? thanks^V^

You can buy silicone rubber for mold making from a variety of places including, which is where i get it from.  I recommend their oomoo silicone if you're just getting started, you can get a trial kit from them.  Alumilite sells a kit for about $60 that comes with everything you need to make your first mold.  Silicone, regardless of where you get it from, is pretty pricy, so be prepared to make a bit of a dent in your pocket book.

Hey there! Just wondering if you could give me any advice on sanding small polymer clay faces. Is there a trick to it?
batchix Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014  Professional Artist
you mean a trick to getting the sand paper from getting clogged?  There's not really, unfortunately.  :{  There are two things that can make it easier.  One is, for lower grits, you can use sanding screens intended for plaster instead of sand paper.  They're designed not to clog, but they don't come in a huge range of grits.  You can also try using steel wool.  If you do, you can use olive oil with it to help it from clogging.  It's kind of messy, but it does work.

The other is to get a wire brush from the hardware store and when the paper clogs, gently scrape it over the wire brush to remove the super sculpey sludge.  Wet sanding can help sometimes too, but it's still frustrating.  It's also a good idea to use sanding sponges when you can, it's easier to get a more even coverage.  You can buy them, or you can do what i do and cut up some squares of fun foam and use a little hot glue to attach the sand paper to it.

For getting in tiny places I recommend a bit of steel wool rolled up in a small ball and then pinch it with some forceps.  You can grasp that like a pencil and get into places like the crevices of eyes and stuff.

hope that helps!
