"Trista, If you just keep tightening the foot hinge screw, it will bend the metal and you can get it to where the hinge can be animated. "

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Dieter Wagner's discussion 3d printed mold cast in gel-foam
"Of course the problem with putting a layer of liquid latex into the mould will be seam lines. Dipping the finished article into latex would eliminate this, but the water in the latex might cause other issues. You could also try a thin layer of latex…"

Dieter Wagner replied to Dieter Wagner's discussion 3d printed mold cast in gel-foam
"Thanks for the input Simon!  I will give the liquid latex coating a try.  It is very jellylike, so maybe a few coats of liquid latex first would give it a nice container. I had thought about giving it a single dip into some liquid latex…"
