These are two Flat figures that I did several years ago.Both made using Super Sculpey Firm which is a clay that you bake to harden.
Both figures measure approx 5" high, 2" wide & 1/4" deep and are painted in Acrylics.

After starting in the hobby making 3D figures I was asked to do a flat figure that could be mounted into a picture frame. Traditionally flat figures are made by engraving slate and pouring tin/alloy to create a one sided metal figure. As I had never engraved before I decided to sculpt the figure using clay directly onto a pane of glass so that the back of the figure would be completely flat. I also had never worked with metal and found it to be an expensive option, so decided to make a rubber mould and cast them in resin.

I've also posted another figure in the Non-Civil War Miniatures section @Booner you might want to take a look :thumbsup:
