I`m impressed how you perfectly catched the anatomy of every muscle and the proportions of the body :)

Thank you all for your pleasant words!  cheers bounce drunken drunken drunken

I was searching and searching and I´ve found many manuals how to make copies. But I had to find some e-shop that is selling materials for it. An I´ve found it too  Twisted Evil One czech e-shop with materials necessray fot molds and copies  Surprised But I have some questions:

 - In one one manual was written this, silicone rubber is mixed, then vacuumed in a vacuum chamber to remove air bubbles
      How can I vacuumed it? What is vacuum chamber? This manual was talking about silicone rubber called Mold Max® 30, so must I do it with every silicon rubbers?


 - And another question, how many times can I bake the Super sculpey? I have the original one.


 - Last question: If the copie  will have some defect, can I remove it? And how?

Thank you Roger  tongue cheers  
At first I was using images from google, not so quality, like skeletons and paintings from books, and lions and tigers from Papo  Neutral But I´ve found beautiful page called Jun´s anatomy, and there was lot of anatomical models, like lion, elephant or horse - and there was smilodon too  bom

This looks wonderful, a very powerful body and most obviously made by an artist with a love of big cats. Keep posting... I am so keen to see the head!

I'm no expert when it comes to any mammal, bird, reptile or fish,
but as an animal figure fanatic, I think the smilodon head looks wonderful and in perfect proportions with the body already made.

This is going to be a masterpiece!

I am impressed once more! Shocked Head proportions seem perfect, the pose is great and morphology seems very adjusted. Flat and delicate teeth and you have there a beautiful lady! Very Happy

Your smilodon is really fantastic, Karolina! It reminds me of some of the paintings by Charles R. Knight. Are the Papo big cats you show next to yours also 1:15? I'm sorry I don't know.

Thanks so much for posting pictures here! It's great to see your work!

Many many thaks!!!  Embarassed cheers Embarassed cheers Embarassed

I really appreciate you like it  Wink If you are asking about copies - of course I want to do them  Surprised but that material for it is little expensive so I think it will be my christmas gift from my mum. But I´ve got one idea, I want to tell her if she want to give me that gift a few weeks before christmas and i will have time to make coppies and send them as christmas gifts  santa Although I am very scared from molds, I don´t know exactly how to do it and how it works. And If it the mold will work, I will make only a few copies. I don´t know how many I can do from 860 g. I think abot 3-5 coppies.  Neutral But if it all will work (as I hope) one coppy will be about 15 or 20 euro + shipping.

I`m shure, that some people can give you a good advice about the material for casting.
I`m sorry I can`t help, becouse I don`t have any experience with this material.
But I will be very happy if you have a success with the copies and you count me for one of them bounce Embarassed sunny

Bravo! This is the work of a master.

I hope you are able to figure out the casting procedure; not just for this model at this time, but you may be able to do quite well for yourself in the future selling figures of this quality! Are you interested in casting in PVC or in resin? I've seen casting kits in a few US art suppliers that I think use resin; I can give an address or 2 of artists in the US also who may be willing to help talk you through the procedure. I know one of them helped the second get her business started.

Your smilodon is really fantastic, Karolina!  It reminds me of some of the paintings by Charles R. Knight.  Are the Papo big cats you show next to yours also 1:15?  I'm sorry I don't know.

Thanks so much for posting pictures here!  It's great to see your work!
Thank you  cyclops  The papo tiger is smaller, I think 1:20.
