HOW TO TAKE A GOOD PICTURE by vonBorowsky HOW TO TAKE A GOOD PICTURE by vonBorowsky
This is my first tutorial. It explains how to take a good photo using simple tools. The english is not that good, but I think you can understand. Questions / suggestions in the comments.

I did this because several times I could not see some sculpture right because the pictures were not good, and is not difficult to take reasonable pictures.

It is no way professional.

This is the way I took ALL my pictures, i just changed the white fabric for a white paper =)

Example of a picture taken with this technique

PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF MY TUTORIAL HELPED YOU =D

Your welcome! I just tried to make it once. But maybe try to mix more glue? Or maybe your microwave is more strong than the one the person who did the recipe used. So, maybe less time in the microwave.. Sorry, I really have no experience with that!

^^ and yeah, it's okay. ^^ it turned out I was under cooking it, and since it was so sticky, I was adding lots of cornstarch. the funny thing was that the very first batch of clay I made, was almost perfect. it didn't crack, but it didn't smooth together well, but much better than the other batches. lol. x3 and thanks for the tips! ^^

Hmm, I think you shouldn't add the cornstarch after start baking.

yeah, I ended up cooking it a minute and a half longer, and it turned out a lot smoother and a perfect consistency, but it's still cracking, so I'm kind of upset... 3X

You must mix it very well before start sculpting. A bit like polymer clay.
And when sculpting you can't let any crack because it will be bigger when after the cold porcelain dries.
They must be removed before that.

Sim! Mas usar uma cartolina ou um papel A3, ou mesmo um A4 para suas esculturas que são pequenas fica bem bom também!
