"I second that, about the latex freezing and being ruined. I held off last year on ordering any latex during the winter because I was warned that this would happen. When it finally did come, it was perfect (aside from the fact that costume latex…"

"Oh, I should add - the foam latex base is fairly lumpy. Must be those latex solids... I gues they don't matter in a foamed-up mixture that goes into a mold. The surfae will end up exactly like the inside of the mold. But for buildup work it…"

"I looked up the Woodland Scenics latex - it seems to be a somewhat thinner version of standard moldmaking latex - probably with less filler in it for capturing smaller details. But it still seems to have some filler in it. They put filler in the…"

"As far as latex... I continue to push Woodland Scenics' version of the stuff for anyone willing to look into it. I've tried many brands and the quality varies (some is even crumbly when it cures). Woodland Scenics continues to be far and…"

"I was actually thinking about trying to skin it with liquid latex too, but my supply is back in LA. I usually get lumpy results with my liquid latex build-up puppets (which actually is a great texture for an alien or a burn victim that happen to be…"

Don Carlson replied to Jason Ronzani's discussion Latex Putty Polymer Clay
"I think, since you can skin really anything with liquid latex, the name of the game is getting the armature as close to the final shape of the character as possible. Then you just kind of "connect the dots", treating the skin like…"

"Sorry it took so long to get the results in! I've had a busy Thanksgiving week. I finally had some time to make a quick arm armature (an ARMature) and test it out. The instructions recommend using glycerin hand lotion to increase the…"

"This is what I've been waiting for! Hopefully it is more flexible than Sculpey Bake and Bend or Super Elasticlay. Let me know how it goes. It might work especially well for making a press mold from a hard object. *edit* I see that other folks…"

"Ahh, Nick, Ron's just popular because of all the great stop-mo he does. . .  ;)  Come to think of it, that is why you are very popular here too!  Hmmm.  Besides that you are both totally generous with your hard-won advice,…"

"You're already very popular here - you could end up being the god of latex clay!  Unless Jason gets on with it and tests it first.  Then all your acolytes would desert you.   "

Ron Cole replied to Jason Ronzani's discussion Latex Putty Polymer Clay
"And this stuff is only $6.95 for that package so, it's really worth the 'risk' to see if it's any good. Who knows? It could end up being very popular here if it bends far enough and can be painted."

Ron Cole replied to Jason Ronzani's discussion Latex Putty Polymer Clay
"I've never seen a latex clay before, very interesting. I bet if I had a package of it, it would get used for something. It would probably also be good for small press molds."
Nov 19, 2012
Strider replied to Jason Ronzani's discussion Latex Putty Polymer Clay
"Yeah, it could work for fingers, maybe for very thin arms and legs and things like that. Pretty much the same stuff you build up from solid layers of liquid latex. Looking forward to your tests! "

Jason Ronzani replied to Jason Ronzani's discussion Latex Putty Polymer Clay
"Hi Nick, It is an air dry clay and comes as one whole piece. When I have time, I was thinking about making an arm and animating it. I'll report back with my results when I get around to testing it."

StopmoNick replied to Jason Ronzani's discussion Latex Putty Polymer Clay
"I have seen some flexible polymer clay that, when baked, was a fairly firm rubber.  It had been used for thin fingers, and they could bend a bit to give the hands some life, but not go far enough to make a fist.   I'd want to know the…"

Lighting question for all you's guys

Started by Don Carlson in CAMERA & STAGE. Last reply by Don Carlson 9 hours ago. 2 Replies

Hiya, folks.I'm curious what kind of lighting you use- halogen,  tungsten, LED, or compact fluorescent (spiral) bulbs. The main purpose of asking is that I am not sure how hard to design my clay for the animator who is going to use it. So far, there…Continue

Hello fellow stop motion-ers!I have managed to teach myself enough to make a few stop motions, but I still don't quite understand what type of lighting/bulbs to use to prevent the subtle flickering throughout an animation? I want to be able to…Continue
