How much clay do you need to make a 1/8th Scale Figure

Hi, Josh here.

As the title implies, I have asked a couple of times "How much material is usually needed to make a 1/8th Scale Figure?"

Well, the answer for that might actually depend on how complex such a figure might be. However, if we where to talk about a 1/8th 1.72m tall (21.5cm) busty onee-san bishoujo figure like Rias Gremory (Oh, and with her wings of course) in a skimpy swimsuit (and maybe a straw hat on her head), I would say that one block of Paper Clay would be more than enough and probably you'll just use a little bit more than half a block.
Rias Gremory, for reference. Not the actual pose and swimsuit intended for the figure.

I'm currently (and slowly) working on this one, with no due date to completion. But here is a photo for size comparison with a F.A.Girl (so you may understand in I'm also working currently), :)

A word about sculpting

Hi, Josh here. Maybe one of the main reasons I decided to revive the blog (besides incredible amounts of boredom) came recently due to a another blog I read in My Figure Collection; a site where you could actually boast about how deep you have gone into the rabbit hole (I kinda love the term). The blog had the purpose of asking information about what materials are best for sculpting, and suddenly I felt the need to explain.


Blog Auto-sage

Hi, Josh here. It’s been a while, I know. My hiatus could be mostly attributed to a combination of finishing my studying period abroad, moving back to my country, looking for a job, and working. However, during this time some things remain the same; some have change. It is curious how life is full of paradigms; and, as you grow, some things start to change, you start liking some things, and you start disliking some other things, etc., etc.

Hi, Josh here.


Yeah, I have been inactive for almost a year, let's change that. Here is my newest (for not saying my first) WIP of a complete full-scratch figure. This time the subject is Shinonono Houki from the recently released and finished show Infinite Stratos (IS).

TREASURE FESTA in Ariake 3 - Report - Part 03

Hi! Josh here. This is the final entry of the TF in Ariake 3 photo report. Lots of dealers, lots of figures and kits, so little time (and camera skills -____-), but I hope you like it so here we go. 


TREASURE FESTA in Ariake 3 - Report - Part 02

Hi! Josh here. The second part of the TF report with more dealers and more figures.


TREASURE FESTA in Ariake 3 - Report - Part 01

Hi everyone! Josh here. It's finally Saturday here in Japan. And while TF was this past Tuesday, I was really busy after I returned to Nagaoka to even think on how to build-up this report. Many interesting things to see, and buy, at Tokyo Big sight. So, I would like to present you a photo report about it.
