Brick Work 1 Year, 4 Months ago  
Hello all, i have been messing around with sculpting some things and getting the hang of it. Well i just acquired some actual tools and was wondering about sculpting bricks into the wall to sort of match my DF stuff. Keep in mind its not to resell or anything i just want some custom pieces to go with what i've already got. My problem is short of actually squishing out individual bricks im having a hard time carving grooves into a large piece of clay and making it not look like ive just done it with an x-acto. Can anyone help me out with techniques or tips anything is appreciated? Thanks in advance and sorry for the drawn out post lol.

Sculpting Art class at Lamar maybe? ;-)
Try searching YouTube for sculpting 3D terrain.
Have you seen any of stormthecastle.com sculpting and casting videos?

I'm not a sculptor, but do you have a tool with a small (possibly squared-off?) loop at the end? You want a furrow between the bricks, and that kind of a tool might help.

I know that toward the end of your sculpting process, you should use a real natural roundish stone (as Stefan does) that you roll over your sculpt to provide texture.

i appreciate all the help guys i have some rocks for the texturing pretty much the thing thats been giving me the most problems is getting the stones to have "rounded" edged like on my MM items i think maybe its cause im just using regular sculpey i might try getting some super sculpey or sculpey firm. And thank you Jak i know what tool youre referring to and ive been thinking about getting that tool (dont have it yet). That video helps alot
