The figure is crafted out of 98% sculpey and 2% aluminum foil (in the big Totoro). The big Totoro and the wooden branch are painted with acrylic. The platform is wood. It has a finish glaze. The figure is about 11cm x 12cm.

Looks like Pikachu's older, grey & fame reclusive cousin. I jest. Decent creation. Even moreso with you designing and making it, rather than just designing it. You should make & sell your own pokemon designed characters. As well as your own other original products. You could make a whopping with that idea.
Haha, nice jest there. I can see the resemblance . At the time, I tried to stay away from individual pokemon characters because I have a friend who does Sculpey as well, except she mainly sculps pokemon. I wanted to avoid any potential cause of drama xD
Understandable, especially with companies being willing to throw lawsuits against you if you gain popularity, nowadays. Your work is pretty cool. Gonna tag along for a while and see how it all proceeds.
Thanks! Hmmm... if I remember correctly, it took about a full day (including sleep). The only specific tools i used to make this were the sculpey clay tools and aluminum foil for the branch and large totoro to 1) save on clay and 2) reinforce the branch as I worked on it.
Oh my goodness. This little sculpture brought back such wonderful memories from when I was younger and was deeply in love with this movie. Absolutely stunning job on making Totoro, he looks so much like the 'real' thing. And the little totoros are so adorable! I also love the flower on the left, it just wraps this simple sculpture up so well. Thank you for making this!
I use aluminum foil for larger pieces like the large totoro. It's mainly to save on clay. I also use it to reinforce some things like the branch. When I tried baking it, the thick branch never managed to stay curved, so I used aluminum foil for that. Also, I was scared that maybe the thinner branch may snap off, so I used aluminum foil to reinforce that part.
I happened to see your comment and thought I'd help. The acrylic paint works perfectly fine on the clay, as long as it is dry and baked first. I know I'm not who you were asking, but I use Sculpey glaze. Just keep trying.
