Thanks!papamurf812 said:I must say, that's damn fine! What else have you made, this can't be your first build. What material are you using, is it just clay?
Ya that would be cool, nice job. Im not sure i fyou can just go straight to fiberglass or not, dont you have to do the rubber and lots of other stuff? I dont know much but ive read a lot. Just wanted to warn you.poosnicles said:looks amazing but can you take pics of the prosses and stuff of you molding it and casting and what not plz?
You can use whatever clay you're comfortable with, some people think a harder oil based clay is preferable to produce the smooth as glass effect of the helmet but someone who is experienced with water based clay can produce the same effect. If you're a beginner I'd recommend a softer oil based clay. Something like Chavant "le beau touche". I'm using Klean Klay because it's all I had but I wouldn't recommend it for sculpting as it's a bit sticky or something.smilie120 said:I really want to start sculpting my helm. But what type of clay id you use? Air dry, water based, oil based? Pleas i need to know
Thanks guys.smilie120 said:WOW thats lookin' spiffy looks quite similar to Seans. Btw i have 3 more questions.
1. I though oil based clay doesent harden.
2. if i made a plaster mold of the helm would i have to disect the clay mold?
3. Wouldent the plaster adhere (or stick to) the clay as it dries?
