thoren said:well that seems like it might cost a little too much. but would it produce much better results? because mine seems pretty cheap but more detail is probably lost in my method isn't it?
and where might i get oil clay from?
honest_insanity said:There is a wide variety of different websites. However, i got my clay from a place called Hobby Lobby.
Ive done this type of mold making process. MAKE SURE you fiberglass the inside though!
You also dont need an epoxy. You can add a layer of blue painters tape (oil based clay will stick better to it)
Remember, for more detail, use the harder clays. After adding the desired amount of detail then you can use brushable rtv silicone on it. It WILL work fer yah.
Soon you guys will see my CQB resin helm
thoren said:umm since i never even thought about this method before u posted this link to the you tube vid of the one guy makeing a odst helmet. exactly how much is he skipping when he says he is skipping alot? and what is this method called so i can look for a tut or something in the stickys
lol, sorry Dad.cheech92007 said:wow guys comon, this is not an open chat. either help me out or go talk somewhere els. thanks
Finnish Spartan said:You can just add apoxie or clay untop of the helmet and that should make it possible to mold it (resin and fiberglass first).
So what about taking a pep chest piece that has those strut braces inside of it that are made of cardboard, then pouring a little fiberglass resin of the inside as well as brushing some on the outside for some strength, then applying the clay over top of the chest and casting from that?
