I just bought some clay at Walmart and I have no idea what to do. I was thinking maybe a cavy or solenodon. What do you think?

A cavy might be a good place to start. Relatively easy shape and can give you a good feel for the clay and how to best use it.

Air dry? Polymer? Traditional?

Why not both ? Very Happy They are both SO lovely Wink

I wouldn't imagine that a cavy is easy, with the long legs and ears, - but then I am no expert Embarassed

Good luck with the project, I hope you will let us see the result bounce Very Happy

Well, I suppose it depends on what animal one means by cavy. I was thinking guinea pigs. But then again, I have a cold and not thinking very straight. So my apologies.

I think a cavy may be a Guinea pig or a mara that is also known as Patagonian cavy. I love maras and always wanted to see it made by one of the major brands. Though, with a solenodon in question I don't have any doubts in supporting this last suggestion! Very Happy

:lol:Don't worry, you already have permission to post pictures. You can find here some topics explaining it although some of them are probably outdated. Very Happy
Basically, you upload your pictures on Photobucket or something similar and copy the bbcode they provide to your post on forum.
No hurries, just keep posting normally and when you figure it out, just post once we love to see others works. Very Happy
Feel also free to ask anything else whenever you want. Very Happy

That's absolutely okay, I was just curious.

Welcome, by the way :)

I have chosen the cavy. I just sculpted it 5 mins ago. I will make a mate for her and maybe a pair of solenodons!

You need to paste the IMG code below your pic on Photobucket. You will see, it is easy Wink

For pics from photobucket, for visual reference:

 

If you wish to use a direct link to the image on your own site (say it doesn't come with an image tag):

I think I should have clarified, so apologies. The img tag can only be used with links to image files, those ending in .jpg, .gif, etc...

(I'm using the info about the above "not Koi" photo for illustration purposes only)

If you were trying to link to the album, photobucket should have a link for sharing.  If you try to use the one in the navigation bar, it is only for the owner's photostream thus it will default to the album of the person logged in.  (If using the album instead of a picture, you'd want to use the icon to the right of the img icon (it looks like a link or paperclip) and insert it as a link, for example, I'd use: http://s23.photobucket.com/user/Silveria_2/Zoo%20repictured/story if i wanted to share the whole album .)Wilorvise's Album

If you accidentally copied the direct link (e.g. http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b381/Silveria_2/Zoo%20repictured/KoiB_zpskg8ccskz.jpg~original) you can still use the Photo link.  and just paste that in there

I hope that helped?

You can "quote" to see the code of this if you want.
