Realistic Cappuccino?

This isn't directly related to stop motion, however I knew you all would have the best answers!I need to make a realistic cappuccino (not a tiny one, just a normal size fake one), I'm intending on using a real cup and saucer but am struggling to think of what to fill the cup with to make it look like a cappuccino.. I did consider some sort of resin? Or maybe plaster and then I could paint it? If anyone has any ideas on what sort of material could be used for this I would love to hear. Hope this…See More

"To be honest, the beauty of stop motion art and puppet making is the slow progress making every single item by hand and after months a product comes to life! That's why I really want to improve in making a very detailed puppet.   Good luck!"

"Wow thanks for the great feedback guys. Really appreciate you taking the time to give such detailed responses! It was just an interesting thought I had whilst casting my hands, maybe this is a modelling revelation waiting to happen.. :P"

StopmoNick replied to Grace Diggens's discussion Mould Making
"Making moulds does take some time, whatever material you use to make it from.  But there is no material you can sculpt in directly that offers the properties of soft silicone rubber, or foam latex.  So sculpting in plasticine (or polymer…"

"For features or series work they'd use plastic for molds most likely - but of course that's for silicone puppets. For foam latex I think gypsum is still the #1 performer. I have heard of using fiberglass molds but it raises problems with…"

Mould Making

So I've spent the last few days making some moulds and casting a puppets hands and as I've been doing this I'm thinking this can't be how actual stop mo industry professionals do it is it?I've been using plastaline and plaster to make my moulds, but it's pretty time consuming and doing it on a huge scale can't be productive in the industry! Don't suppose anyone has any inside information to wether this technique is continued for professionals?See More
