Creating FiguresCreating Figures

Hello all! So I’ve heen collecting for a while now and having a desire to create one. I’ve been looking at garage and model kits and having no look in being able to buy any. So I was thinking about just crafting a figure from scratch.
I’m wondering if folks on here who make their own figures could give me beginners advice! I bought regular clay just to test my abilities first and my skill but once I get the hang and want to make something, I’m going to want better materials.
If anyone here makes or follows those who make their own figures, can I get some advice? Aka what type of clay, paint, sprays to use, etc.
Hopefully if I get good enough, I can sculpt a nice figure/statue of Namie from Durarara!!(+drrr!!x2) and maybe a few other waifus.


TLDR how do I start making anime figures/statues thx

I appreciate whoever reads! Thanks for any help.

Do you have any kind of experience that would be helpful for this sort of thing? Anything like repairing figures, painting really small details in 2D or 3D, being able to draw so you can plan out what the figure would look like from different angles, making some kind of accessory or pet or something for an existing figure, etc?

It's probably a good idea to start off with some kind of kit or by making a custom nendoroid or other chibi figure. I've done both, and I still feel like a full custom is beyond me, but that's just myself.

Tip 1: Start small, be proud of your accomplishments no matter how insignificant they might feel, document your progress, and don't abandon your dreams.

Tip 2: Watch other people do it on YouTube. Try searching for terms like "milliput sculpting", "custom figure", "diy figure", "cold porcelain", and so on. Even if the projects don't look like the one you want to make, watch them anyway and learn the techniques. Most of what I've learned about customizing Nendoroids came from watching Warhammer videos.

There are tons of guides out there on sculpting. Here’s one such guide. It’s for a miniature, but the basis of what you want in a figure you’ll find there. As for the material I recommend Green Stuff of Milliput the best. Easy to work with, good crafting times, and can survive some wear-and-year. For now we’ll skip on paint, sandpaper, and really everything else because you need to practice! And to do that, sculpt some small things. Seriously don’t try making a full figure yet it will only lead to frustration (speaking from experience of trying and failing at sculpting). Just sculpt small, simple things. Like a small dog or a frog. Or a square. Simple, less detail, that’s what you want. Once you master that, just gradually work your way up to bigger and bigger things.

Granted, this is coming from someone who like said tried sculpting and it backfired. So, ya know, you do you. If you want to dive right in I recommend reading up on sculpting online and watching some videos at the very least. Another thing you can do is attempt to mimic an existing figure you already have. Seeing it in 3D is a lot better than 2D if you ask me.
