Please find here "The Blind Death", my very personal vision of the death. A piece I have been working on for about 2 years.
This is probably my best piece to date. I hope you'll enjoy her.

Hi Patrick, may I ask, do you use fimo grey out of the pack, or do you use a mix (like JAG)?

Hi, I'm mixing classic champagne with soft dolphin grey and a bit of classic black to have a darker grey

Amazing stuff!  I have recently started using Super Sculpey and i wanted to ask you how you deal with applying second and subsequent layers after curing the first. I noticed that the sculpey has a hard time sticking on the surface, and tends to move around when you try to sculpt on it. Green stuff on the other hand is pretty sticky when it sticks to a surface. Just wondering how you deal with this. Thanks

P.s  Your Dark Age miniatures are top notch!!!

Don't do a lot of baking, trying to wait the final step before baking so adding fresh sculpey is easy.
To help sticking sculpey on cured one you can put a very thin layer of vaseline on the cured part.

I'm using green stuff as a first layer on the armature before the first layer of sculpey, it helps the sculpey to stick and avoid the move around

Hope it helps,
Thank you,
