I spent all night trying to post a guest-entry over at Mr. Fab's blog, Pointless Drivel (probably Not Safe For Work... or anything else, for that matter), but nothing I tried would work.

Stupid WordPress.

Oh well. Assuming that somebody can help me get it posted tomorrow, there's big fun with Sculpey modeling clay over there...

Sculpey Lil' Dave

I've never played with Sculpey before, and was shocked at how difficult it is to make stuff out of it. Everything I tried to build just ended up looking like a big ol' mess.

Guess I'll be sticking with my computer from here on out...

UPDATE... Thanks to Shelli and her kick-ass admin privileges, my post is now up...

  1. The last time I made anything out of sculpey was in 1999. A friend and I made a bunch of really cool beads, baked them in the oven, felt really proud, and then for the next three years I was finding those damn beads in the strangest of places.

    I think they’re all gone now.

  2. Lisa says:

    First of all the sculpty is awesome! Second, what kind of WordPress help do you need? I’ve broken it so many times that I’m really good at fixing it!

  3. That looks amazing!

    It’s funny to see Fab’s little toys on your blog… I’m going over and see what you’ve done to Fab’s blog… can’t wait.

  4. Eileen Dover says:

    It’s actually kind of cute… in a Gumby-esque sort of way.

    Hey, perhaps that’s why Gumby was so visually simple?

  5. Hilly Sue says:

    I will guarantee you two things:

    1.) Between the four of us, your post will get up there!

    2.) Anything you made out of sculpey has to be 400% better than anything I can make. That’s a very cute first picture :).

  6. Michelle says:

    I think you did a good job with the sculpey. Best part is, it doesn’t make me feel slightly nauseous like Fab’s sometimes does.

  7. MRKisThatKid says:

    Is Sculpey like Fimo? I used to love playing with that stuff, never made anything decent though. Hmm wonder if you can still get any.

  8. bogup says:

    I like ’em! Cute, cute, cute.
    Do they sing a raisin song?

  9. Christine says:

    If Lil Dave & Bad Monkey are a mess, then I’d sure like to see what your best looks like.

  10. Lewis says:

    I’m going over to the nasty not for work site right now. And I’d better not find anything that wouldn’t fly in the face of Jesus.

  11. Tracy says:

    Yeah, I kinda like L’il Dave & Bad Monkey better in their cartoon forms…but the sculptures make really nice prototypes for action figures, which I would totally buy. Nice work with the clay!

  12. Tracy says:

    AND really nice work with the fun-foam background!

  13. yellojkt says:

    NSFW? How about Not Safe For Sanity? Funny but very disturbing.

    I got drunk before taking my pictures of the eclipse, so I have an excuse for them being so blurry.

  14. kapgar says:

    Okay, the stuff may be a pain in the ass to use, but the end result is awesome! I love those sculpts.

  15. Turtle says:

    Blargh is the opposite of Ping, which means you are emitting a quantum of happiness. Blargh means you are emitting a quantum of sadness of boredom. It was invented at MIT, just like everything else.

  16. whall says:

    Wow, great sculptoon! I want it to be animated now. Can we get the Davey and Goliath artists over here, please?

    I’ve _gotta_ try out this movable type thing. If it’s easier than wordpress, it must take voice commands AND give you a back massage at the same time. Does it write for you too? You’re the second guest poster in a week I’ve heard complain about it’s usability have issues and I prefer to assume you’re right vs stupid.

  17. Sculpey Rocks! (I’m a Sculpey design team member but GOD don’t tell anyone, k?)

    I’m techotarded so I can’t ever figure out blog things … ever. Glad you worked it out. 😉

  18. Avitable says:

    That was awesome!

  19. Dave2 says:

    Velvet… I have a lot of Sculpey left… maybe I should try making beads!

    Lisa… I think something just went wrong. Hilly and Kyra had problems too, so maybe it’s the installation over at Mr. Fab’s blog? I dunno, but only administrators appear to be able to make posts “stick.”

    CK… I’ve totally destroyed Fab’s blog! Oh the humanity!

    Eileen… It is almost impossible to sculpt that stuff to make it look smooth and clean. Maybe there are experts out there who would prove me wrong, but I didn’t even come close!

    Hilly Sue… You and I need to switch to WordPress!

    Michelle… I think that’s what Fab is going for when he posts his Sculpey creations! 🙂

    MRK… I dunno. The stuff sure looks like FIMO and is sold in the same little packages… so maybe?

    Bogup… I think Bad Monkey would set the California Raisins on fire… he doesn’t like singing foods. 😛

    Christine… Unfortunately, I don’t have the patience to find out!

    Lewis… Ironic you should say that… did you check out the Sculpey Jesus that Mr. Fab has done?

    Tracy… I think I would have to computer model them in 3-D to get them to look good. I had NO luck getting smooth sides no matter what I did.

    Yellojkt… Uhhh… huh? There’s no eclipse in my Sculpey!

    Kapgar… I’ll be expecting YOUR Sculpey post any day then…

    Turtle… Yeah, that pretty much sums it up!

    Whall… I just think that Fab’s install isn’t working properly, though I am still not a fan of WordPress. Whenever I Googled for how to fix my problems EVERY SINGLE TIME I was given code to modify. I want to write… not modify code!

    KG… If you’re on a secret Sculpey Team… then you must be far more talented than I am!

    Avitable… I’m an awesome guy, what can I say?

  20. Hilly Sue says:

    If you and I are switching to WordPress, you know what we’re doing first right? You grab the Jaeger and I’ll get the lemon drop stuff and we’ll get shitfaced ;).

  21. grainne says:

    This is perhaps the best Sculpey Post I have seen….love the background, adore the monkey and your hair is simply fantastic !! Great job…you just raised the bar on Sculpey to a new level !

  22. Hey, that looks DARN GOOD for your first try at sculpting with that clay.

  23. Bec says:

    So obviously you’ll be using these sculpts to continue your domination of the planet by showing just how cute you can be?!

    I am looking at MT4 at the moment as I am sick of having issues with WordPress. I love it 95% of the time but the other 5% just really pushes my buttons.
