Sculpting a demon claw

Recently I found an old tutorial of mine. I thought that i should post it here on this site also.

Tools needed

  • Toothpicks
  • Sculpting tool similar to Games Workshops one
  • Lubricant
  • Clay (Greenstuff used in this tutorial)


In every step i use the gw tool and the lubricant to smooth the gs, and i always keep the toothpick lubricated too.

Let's get started

Step 1
Take an appropriate sized lump of greenstuff. This was a leftover from when i did some sculpting on my lord.

Step 2
Shape the lump a bit like a hand, or rather a paw shape actually.

Step 3
Now take your toothpick and make a hole in each of the "finger" spots

Step 4
Take smaller piece of gs..

Step 5
Roll the gs to a cylinder, and then start rolling only at one of the edges...

Step 6
Until it becomes a cone-like shape.

Step 7
Cut the cone at a good length.

Step 8
Attach the cone to one of the sockets on the hand.

Step 9
Bend the cone with a smooth tool.

Step 10
With a little poking around to style the hand it can end up like this.

And here is how it can look applied to a model.


This was my very first tutorial ever written, with a feeling of nostalgia mixed with other emotions i post this and hopefully it will be usefull for someone.
