I was doing this for my army and decided to take WIP pics. I'm reading my instructions in the video so I sound weird. I would have left too many details out if I "winged it" like usual. Sculptors may laugh at my attempt but I suck at sculpting so this was my process

And yes I'm casting these for duplication because I made the piece ha!

To minimize the problem you had with it sticking and needing to be pried up, theres two solutions to that might help.

The easiest would be to do it on a pieces of aluminium foil, it should peel right off after bakin and is oven safe

The other would be to dust the work surface with talcum powder or something similar to prevent it from sticcking (just like using flour to keep dough from sticking to the counter).

Either of those should help keep your symbols intact

Well you want it to stick, just to a surface you can put in the oven. Most of the cutting on it was done like a saw and if the clay did not stick to the paper it would have distorted the design greatly. 275 F didn't even brown the paper so it's not a problem. And once baked the clay will easily come off the bottom paper.

very nice...i intend on giving this a try.

have you considered partially cooking the sculpy ? maybe to firm it up a bit before cutting ?

Yeah I thought of that but I think my blades would be crying after 1 piece and the tips would more than likely break off. For me anyway

For things that break the tips off your #11's, you might want to try a #10(think thats the number) its the curved blade.

I like em alot-being able to roll the blade to make cuts seems to save alot of tip breakage

I used a number 10 (the curved blade ) to carve manzanita and it never broke or bent, and it hardly dulled past a standard knives sharpness. Pretty amazing actually, manzanita is one of the hardest woods in the world.

Be careful if you do use it though, the curve tip slips quite easily.
