    Sculpting in hydrocal for vacuum forming project (a helmet)?

    Ah, yes, my initial plan was to vacuum form directly over the clay+plaster lifecast/sculpture ...but udog brought up the idea of making another lifecast of the clay sculpture and cast that again in plaster... I'm probably going to try both methods... just to try it out and see what the results...

    Sculpting in hydrocal for vacuum forming project (a helmet)?

    Do you have any recommendations for which Laguna Clay to buy? They seem to have many different types... Could you recommend a firmer plasticine clay? I'm in Riverside, CA - not opposed to making a drive down to LA. Should I use silicone or alginate if I work with plasticine clay? I see this...

    Sculpting in hydrocal for vacuum forming project (a helmet)?

    Hello anyone listening. I'm planning on making a very fitted robot helmet by lifecasting my head in two-parts (a front piece and a back piece) (with smooth on, plaster bandages, and hydrocal) and then sculpt around that (with a sculpting mixture of the hydrocal mixed with acryl 60). Then I plan...
