More experiments on the molding front. I'm using 28mm since its large and forgiving but the techniques could work for any scale once mastered.
Heres my current WIP:
Keep in mind the clay, yes clay, is still wet so I haven't had a chance to clean the flash or tidy things up. Its still looking pretty good, I'd say!
The casting material? Simple, air-drying clay. I plan to fill gaps with epoxy and PVA, then spray with a solid matte varnish or two call it complete. Woohoo, cheapness!
All told: I probably spent a few cents worth of clay on these casts. So wrong yet so right!
