What clay do you use for the head/ feet etc. and where do you get the eyes from?

Oh okay,don't have to buy new paint, that's good lol. Straight onto the glass or onto paper or something and glued on?

Either works. onto paper then glued with clear paint is easier

Ah! Original sculpey. That's fine then ^^ - I've seen lots of people say that super sculpey is much better quality clay etc and I got convinced I was using some sort of inferior clay haha. I feel better now :3

it is better quality but also much more expensive.  Original sculpey works well enough for me i dont feel i need to pay the same amount for 1/2 the amount of clay for super.

Yes I know that first point!
You don't think it's worth having a little in supply for very small details that might 'smoosh' easily? I have trouble with tiny hands and things :P but you must have ways around those problems, seeing all the little scales and feathers you do :)

Might be worth it but there are other things you can do. Sometimes I put it in the freezer for a bit if it's too soft, you can also use a heat gun to harden spots that you are finished with. I sometimes use epoxy clay as well on peices after they are baked.

Ahaaa :)
I've never thought of a heat gun before and it sounds really useful lol, I have to go get me one of those :) Not that I've researched them yet so I bet they're expensive. They aren't an alternative for baking are they? I doubt it would be easy to get an even coverage if you did try that. I was just thinking because I've seen a couple of people who've put a large project into the oven and have a tail blacken and become fragile or something because the body needed a longer time but the tail was thin and was done quickly. If you could choose which bits got heated for how long yourself it would make things easier :)

Thank you for the information ^^
