    Metallic finish on latex?

    Prosaid, certainly another option I hadn't thought of. Does it tend to dry out matte or shiny?

    Metallic finish on latex?

    Thanks for the advice, I'll def check out Jacquard Lumiere since that seems fairly accessible up here in Canada. I've gotten similar recommendations for Rub-n-Buf as well. A friend of mine said to apply it over top latex that's been mixed with metallic powders so you have the bright sheen of...

    Metallic finish on latex?

    Hey all, currently working on sculpting a Solitaire mask from warhammer 40k. I'd like to try making some latex copies in addition to resin ones, and was wondering if there was a way I could do metallic coloration for the horns and mask border? Could I add something like mica powder to a thinned...

    Darkening a silicone mask?

    Thanks for the advice guys. I did a search for dyeing as a method for silicone and did come across a tutorial suggesting using clothing dye at a low temp to color the silicone. Will have to see what the effect looks like on a small section of the mask first though.

    Having trouble sticking oil based clay to hydrocal lifecast

    Thanks for the response. I had a feeling it wasn't dry enough, so the oven idea might be a good idea. For heating, I've built a simple heating box that has a halogen bulb installed so that ideally should get the clay warm enough to stick as much as clay warmed in a microwave. Will try to speed...

    Having trouble sticking oil based clay to hydrocal lifecast

    A day ago, I had my face lifecasted in hydrocal as a positive to sculpt on top of, but I seem to be having trouble sticking my NSP Chavant medium clay to it. I thought this might have been because the cast had not dried up enough as the back of it still felt cold and damp, so I left it...
