Hello and welcome!
this is LuLu Lancaster with a tip on sanding
your Creative Paperclay® sculptures using Sandits™
These swab like sanders are perfect for getting into small spots where a piece of sand paper even a little torn piece just doesn't do the trick.
Sandits™ have two sides a 120 and 180 grit.
I have used the courser side to get "spots and raised areas" off my sculptures.
And then follow with the finer grit in a circular motion, almost twirling the SandIts ™to define areas around eyes, nose and lips.
Nostrils have always been an area on clay sculptures that tend to flatten when sanded. Using the very end tip of the Sandits™you can twirl the rough edges of the nostril without flattening it.
Hands are another area that can be hard to sand. Using the Sandits™ you can get the edges of the fingers, and by again twirling the sander you can create a pocket of the palm
here I have started to sand the top of the hand showing better definition.
And here is a palm.
The sanders can get gunked up quickly. A few swishes in water and a good brushing with an old stiff paintbrush will clean them right up.
And these sanders can be used wet also :D
