So I'm looking to move away from bondo. It's awful to work with.
Sure, it's hard, and you can get super sharp angles on it, but sanding is just a pita.
I'm looking at Chavant NSP Medium as the clay I'd be buying.
Couple questions though.
1) Is Chavant NSP medium the right clay for sculpting helmets and fine detail
2) Is it reusable?
3) Does it ever dry out?
4)My house is usually pretty warm. No shade, so house is in the sun all day. House rarely gets below 80 in the summer. Will my sculpts just melt?
5) I can make silicone molds right from the clay for use in slush casting resin correct?
6) Any good resources for learning how to sculpt? Tutorials, dvds, that kind of thing?
And lastly...What I was planning on doing was making my pepakura files as I normally do, resin the outside, rondo the inside for stability, then use that as my armature and my jumping off point for the sculpt...but I don't see people doing this. I'm fairly certain I couldn't do a sculpt from square one with just a giant block of clay and get the measurements etc as perfect as I'd like. Can I sculpt this way?
I think that's about it for now, if I have any more questions, I'll be sure to ask!
