By texture, do you mean the texture of the skin, with the bumps and the like? I was thinking at one point that I could sculpt portions of the skin texture in clay, then make a plaster mold and cast sheets of latex from that. Then, I'd just laminate those sheets of latex onto my Mr. Incredible suit. It would be like sculpting and casting a mask, but just a flat sheet instead.

I never ended up doing that, though. I'm mentioning this idea just in case it might be workable for you -- and in case anyone else thinks this method would work.

you definitely can do this . pull the sheets out of thin latex ..then cut them accordingly and barge ( industrial shoe glue) them to your suit ..make some cabo patch ( mix cabosil and prosaid to a frosting like consistency) and spackle it around the edges of the texture sheets to blend it ...wipe the excess cabo patch down with a wet sponge and it will dissolve into a nice edge .as the patch starts to gel up, you can sculpt in the rest of the texture

hmm interesting sounds like something i can do lol with only partially messing it up. but i still would like to know if anyone out there makes said textured parts. i.e back, shoulders, some arms, and some on the legs.if not i have a suit i can cut up but i was hoping to sell it on here and not demolish it. the other issue is i was planning on buying a suit from flex designs so that throws a kink into it a little since i would have to latex up the parts i am adding texture to on that suit aswell so i would not trash it......wouldn't i?

Well, if you don't have any clay, you can't start your sculpt. Go to an art store or a craft store and get some oil-based clay and some sculpting tools. (Not water-based clay, because that'll harden and you won't be able to revise it later.) For the method I'm thinking of, you won't even need a mannequin -- you can just roll out the clay on a flat surface and start sculpting on it. Then, once you're ready to mold it, you can make the mold using Ultracal 30 gypsum cement.

There are sculpting and molding tutorials on the Lair, and The Monster Makers also has a tutorial on their site.

i am using a suit from http://flexdesigncostumes.com/products.php# it is being made as we speak. and as i get the texture i will cut and add the texture to the muscles so it forms around the suit. i readon the forum someone else was asking this type of question and they are saying the might use spandex suit over top of the muscle suit and just paint it up likethat so they do not ruin the suit.

for the texture, i used pom poms of different sizes, as well as wax chippings and beads. At layer 2 or 3 of latexing..i coated them in latex...stuck them onto the suit in certain areas where i wanted the bumpy/scaley texture, then continued to add my layers of latex over it.....for the slimy/shiny look, i used a high gloss sealant by folklore. came out great for a first suit...pics are in my profile if u want to see

Here are some ideas that I thought you might like! The first one is a sculp I did with some medium modelin clay, the other is a picture of a wallet from one of my co-workers! I plan on combining the 2 for a different kind of texture, I hope these help you out with your skin!
