is there a tutorial on here on how to work with fiberglass? if so, could someone plz direct me to it? and yes, i kno there is a search thingy at the top...it tends to not find what i look for.
wow. didn't think anyone would actually help. thnx.hey bud, i used for a bio ffor my nephew and its easy,smelly but easy... 1st do it in a well ventilated area(outside back yard preferably) . it comes in A METAL CONTAINER WITH A LITTLE TUBE OF a drying agent, remember that that tube is for the whole can so use accordinly... mix well then use paintbrush and paint a few coats of it... wash paintbrush between coats.it comes with e little fiberglass mesh or cloth to give it extra strength. like i said it stinks alot, so dont breath the vapors from it. also dont put it where your face is gonna be in contact with it unless u coat it with something like paint or clear coat... once u build a few layers u can sand ,dremmel and paint it... hope his help
thnx man. didn't think of those.You don't need to use smelly resin and fibreglass, you can use a whole host of other safer alternatives. Papier mache, bondo/epoxy, jesmonite, plaster bandage etc. Main thing to consider is the weight if you're going to wear it. I've used a papier mache like product called Sculptamold and it can be modelled a bit like clay. It can be air or oven dried, sets pretty hard and can be lightly sanded and drilled. Light as a feather and safe. You can get it from Amazon.
Use the search facility for more info.
If you do use resin/fibreglass make sure you have good ventilation, mask up and keep your skin covered to protect you from the really annoying itchy fibres.
Here's what I got. I started with a bio and because the left side was correct and the right side some how got warped and smashed, I wound up with an Army of Two mask.Do you have any pix to show of it yet?
