Sculpey Scale Model PC Case Tutorial

The Simple construction of a scale clay model of a PC Case.
After your base Clay PC Case has been created you can Modify it
as a Model of what you plan to create on a larger scale.

First you flatten out the sculpey and cut out the shapes:

Then you make sure there all the same size:

Here are all the pieces I need for a basic pc case:

Then you put them in the oven at 225 Degrees Fahrenheit for roughly 7min
So they harden enough where I can work with them:

Now trim off the excess, and add a side window if you want:

You simply use more clay to hold the pieces together in the shape of a PC Case
and put it back in the oven for another 10min:

Then you sand it down to get the square shape back:
I suggest using a orbital sander, or its going to take a while.

And there you go a Mini PC Case:

Now I can make a front panel for it, Put a LED in there, Cut a CD Jewl case for a plexi window.
Use some screen for mesh. Ect. .

You get the idea though, after its hardened you can cut a case window out on the side
or add stuff here and there.

This way you can figure out if something will look decent or not, without cutting into your PC case.
Or wasting any materials. Just clay.

laughed at? Anything that will possibly give an easier time on designing will never be laughed at....unless its like "Bake a computer!" then id laugh.

Im making my modders challenge models from clay, lol. FAR from being done, and theyre kinda small. Ive dealt with clay before, and i just wish i had sculpey. I got the...gay ass air drying **** lol.

A GREAT tip...is to, once you have the basic shape of your object is to dremel the features into it. Youll get to see on my models lol

You'd need a large furnace for anything much bigger though but it's definitely worth knowing.
