Any tips or tricks to make it easier?See More

"Hi Antonio, I just shipped almost 40 packs out. Not really sure which colors people need the most, but white is in there. Probably going to start making the most common 12 colors and the rest of the current 28 will be available as special order."

Ideas for this mold?

Hello All,Iv'e been working on this sculpt and getting ready to make a mold of it (probably in hydrocal) for a cast in DragonSkin 10.  Any thoughts on the best orientation of the mold? I'm thinking two parts and seaming it up the sides and along the shoulders; but maybe three parts would be better?  Also I'm wondering if it's worth ordering some Ultracal 30 in place of the hydrocal.  There will be hands and ears that will be applied separately.  The sculpt itself is Prima Plastina, sulfur free.thanks in advance for your suggestions,timSee More

Where are you guys getting supplies for ball and socket armatures? I didn't want to spend the $100 online. Ive heard of people taking apart the helping hands tools you can buy for soldering but I can't find them at stores.

I'm working on a new project, and am needing to make a really anatomically precise puppet. I've been watching this test of the T-Rex that Tippett did way back when, and I'm just floored by the way the skin slides over the pelvis, ribcage, and other…Continue
