Creating a custom from scratch

Posted in Custom Workstation

Well guys I decided to take my customizing to the next level I wanna try to sculpt cast and build a figure from raw material my only question is what do I use.

The Custom I saw that brought upon this vision said they used wax and resin however I would assume wax would break down and crumble after trying to pose and such (as a candle would).


P.S I plan to give it articulation and I am fully aware this will be no easy or simple task thanks for all your effort in helping me complete my dream summer project .
