Sea Turtle by Zhiah Sea Turtle by Zhiah
Sea turtle charms.

At first I sculpted a polymer clay turtle, then made a mold and cast several turtles in polyurethane. Afterwards they were painted with acrylics.

Omgosh these are absolutely adorable! :heart: They look so realistic and the paint jobs are really nice too. :aww: I love the shape and I think the best part has to be the sculpted mouth. X3 That's just too precious. :love:

You're welcome! :aww: Omgosh that's so awesome. XDD Is it hard to make your own molds?

The materials you need are kind of pricey, but the mold-making process is not that hard, once you know what you need to pay attention to. Plus, it's fun :)

I remember it seemed kinda pricey when I investigated it, but that was at least a year ago. XD Haha It looks like a lot of fun to do though. I'm just afriad of all the errors I'll make because it tends to take me a while to figure things out. I do wanna give it a go sometime in the future though. :)
