Scales are worked up the leg. For this step I used polymer clay over Fixit-Sculpt. When I sculpt some areas of detail, I often have to put my hand into places I have just sculpted detail. Using polymer clay in these instances allows me to quickly solidify detail I have just sculpted with a heat gun, allowing me to then hold the piece without ruining detail I have just finished. These areas have to be handled very gently afterward, as polymer clay is not nearly as durable as Fixit- Sculpt. The lower leg detailing is further completed.
