So I procured myself a toaster oven, and determined to make eyes for my puppets. It ,may take me a few tries. Here is my first try. A tad on the toasty side. Who know Sculpey turns red when burned? It is a tad creepy...
Was thinking if I can get the hang of eyes, maybe I can make mouths that way too. Aardman made a separate plastic mouth for each mouth position on each character for Pirates! In An Adventure with Scientists! They used a 3D printer to do that. Digression aside, I think that would be a good idea. Make the white Sculpey mouths then paint them to match the character. Then I can add teeth, tongue, both or neither. I wish I were better at sculpting.
