After a long day yesterday of trial and error I realized that my t-rex tooth looked more like a sharks fin. So I restarted again today for the 3rd time. As they say 3rd times the charm 🙂 T-Rex Tooth Super Sculpey Project Step 1: Make a Wire Frame. I used a metal coat hanger. Step 2: Make a model of the t-rex tooth with tin foil. Step 3: Add Super Sculpey and sculpt the tooth. Step 4: Bake in the oven. Step 5: Paint the now baked tooth with Primer. Step 6: Paint the tooth brown and add the final touches.
All that's left is to add in features like the ridges along the sides and smooth it out some more. Then bake and paint. Bought the paints this morning from Canadian Tire cost around $12 for the clear coat and a white primer in spray can format.. Annd that's it. I had a fun time working on this. Hope to do it again sometime on my own 🙂
It's good I didn't leave this t-rex tooth until the last minute because I'm not too artistic. It takes me double the time it takes others..
