I'm only going to be making the helmet (if I get that far) because my friend is in love it (and I with Loki admittedly) and I've been wanting to try my hand at molding/clay sculpture for experience relating to the special effects makeup I want to get into.
I don't have an armature nor can I find one, so I attempted to make the basic shape of the helmet with "Activ-Wire Mesh" that was an on-the-whim buy.
(This is my first build ever and this the beginning of step 1, so you're not allowed to laugh YET. :P)
The problem I've encountered is that when not resting on the paint can, it folds into itself like so
The layering is still very thin, but I was just wondering if this was a bad idea and if I should quit while I'm still ahead? What would you recommend?
