"Thanks everyone for sharing your experiments and ideas. Time to update my methodologies- I cast it a few times and I think im going to have to swallow using a foam- I techinically would not need to use the gel 10 on the top with the hair flocking…"

"I have done a couple of experiments using cushion foam coated with builders silicone. You are right that the gel10 does not stick very well to it, although it does have some adhesion. But it should be possible to shape a few bumps and hollows in the…"

Horse Puppet Issue

Hi There,I have been a long time reader but have just joined the group!I recently made a horse with a wire armature and articulated jaw which I cast in silicone but it is too heavy and there is not enough movement in the neck. When I tried to build up the body with more foam the silicone did not stick. I am hapy with how it looks....just not the movement.Is the only solution foam latex? (I have not used this before)See More
