    Im fixing to order some clay. Im guessing that the "hard" clay would stand up best to the molding process, but might be a bit hard to work with. Allthough i've never worked with clay, so anyone with any input ?

    softer the clay, the easier to shape - harder the clay, the better the details show up.

    I got soft myself

    What hardness of clay do I use for making a 2 part mold? (Making the mold, not sculpting the piece I want molded.)

    And how many pounds do I need for a pistol sized mold?

    I am wondering if the visor that you linkedto is the best for a pep or any other helm and if not what is?

    It'll work just fine. There are many suppliers out there... search for "HJC Replacement Facshields" on Google , and hunt down the best price.

    I've bought from Helmets Ect, Rockhead Bikes, and Sandhill Powersports.... but you can also find these on ebay.

    Wow. I'm in deep now. I just ordered 600+ dollars worth of silicone, and urethane plastics.

    Im hoping to have my pistol molded and cast before the H3 launch to go with my suit that hopefully will be done by then as well...


    :eek:

    One thing I never got around to buy was clay. Is it reuseable after casts or is it a one time thing?

    I think I'll get the medium one. But what you do to smooth it? Can you sand it?

  21. Ya seriously some one should make a step by step video/pics of how to make a suit and then write about it step by step. That would be perfect.

    Much thanks for the links Adam, I have been debating making a suit for some time and after looking over yours and BR's work I am inspired to do so even more now.
    Both you and BR have set the bar in armor making, and in a way your fantastic work only makes the community better by pushing us all to our fullest potential.

    Smooth On is a GREAT resource that I never even knew existed!
