I have not seen anyone else do this before and i am wondering why or if i missed it. I know there is someone on here who uses hot clay and pours it into a Pep file and then removes the paper and cleans the file up and adds detail and then molds it, great idea. I was wondering if it would work to use clay onto a hardened pep file instead of bondo and possibly foamies. I am unable to do it where i am so i can't try. When i get home I want to try it. Clay has to be much easier to work with than bondo and a hardened pep file would be a great base to help get size, symmetry, and proportions.
