As part of my new years resolution to make a new thing every week this year, I have decided to make the second weeks project, sculpting an adult toy.
Hold on to your hats prudes, and wholesome folks, futurecrash is going blue. By which I mean, I have decided to make my own adult toy. The first step in this process is sculpting.
If you are going to be casting the toy later in silicon (which I am, stay tuned for next week’s thing a week) you will need to be choosy about what sort of clay you use. Silicons that use platinum based catalysts don’t do well with sulfur. So you need to make sure you use sulfur free clay.
I used Scupltex hard, as it is sulfur free, and never dried out, and the hard variety is very firm and easy to sculpt complex geometry.
Now might be a good time to say up front, I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING. None, I have never made a sex toy before, I don’t know what sizes, shapes, whatever will feel good, will work, will fail, anything. I am flying blind here. So I decided to make something anyone could use (that means it goes in a place everyone has), I will let your imagination fill in the rest of those details.
The rest of the shots below are process shots, you have to do a lot of smoothing, and small adjustments to the form as you look at it from all angles. It is surprisingly easy to ruin one side of the toy while you are fixing another, so I kept turning and shaping and turning, until I got something I think is smooth enough, and nice enough to be done.
So yea, that is where we are at this point, I think it will “work” in the sense that it wont fall apart when I cast it, and the finished product will be tough enough. I have no idea if it will “work” in the sense that people would like to use it. But I think it will come out nice.
Stay tuned until next week when I figure out how to make a mold for this, and cast a couple versions of it.
