Hi

I am a military sculpter and painter and as I am used to small areas, air drying is not a problem.

I show one of my figs below painted in oils, 1/32

What is the best clay to use for a larger areas ie head, with the intention to mould in latex.

I do realise the master will be destoyed but any help is really appreciated.

best wishes

So lemme get this straight. The end result you want to have is a Wearable Latex Mask?

In a quick rundown, Sculpt the Head out of a Oil clay like Chavant or WED CLAY (water clay). After the head is sculpted make a Stone mold with Ultracal30 plaster(gypsum) and then you pour latex into the Plaster mold which produces a wearable latex mask.

Hi,

That is exactly the advice I needed,
I sculpt my figures in milliput but it dries too quick for a long sculpt.

I have Chavant as I use it as a base for 2 piece moulds.

many thanks and see you soon with a sculpt, will need some tips on big casting then
best wishes
