Megalodon Tooth model sculpt from start to finish.
(TOP RIGHT) a wire frame wrapped in aluminium baking tray foil. Yeah, it looks like a pizza at this point.
(TOP LEFT) Here I added the polymer clay (Super Sculpy) over the wrapped foil base. Details were sculpted and added on until satisfied. Proceed to bake in the oven for a good 15-20 minutes.
(BOTTOM RIGHT) After the baking process, the hardened clay sculpture is given a white coating of acrylic gesso. at least two to three coats.
(BOTTOM LEFT)Using photo references of the actual color palette of real Meg teeths, I painstakingly try to give a weathered, fossilized look to the sculpture. Finished it with a nice spray of clear gloss paint.
So there you have it! A very own Megalodon tooth for your personal Cabinets of Curiosities.
