Need a piece of advice from you sculpting pros. I'm about to order some Super Sculpey to try my hand at sculpting armor for batman's new suit in The Dark Knight.
My question is if it's worth getting the newer FIRM type of Super Sculpey for doing "hard" armor-type projects? (I'll cost me maybe 25% more.) Is it easier to work with doing such pieces?
I am a sculpting novice... having mainly done organic stuff before... monster masks and such... and have not been very discriminating in which types of clay I have used. Since I'm going to try and make this nice and sharp I want to be a little more thorough. I'll be doing (at least the first) pieces on a standing half-mannequin.
(Mods: I put this in the prop forum instead of costuming since it'll reach the eyes of a lot more knowledgeable sculpters.)
