Clear modelling materials?

Posted in Custom Workstation

I was looking to make some clear parts for some figures I'm getting. Mostly I'm actually modifying PVCs that can't stand on their own. For example one has feet tilted up so it looks like she's floating. What I wanted to do was sculpt some clear material onto the back and bottom of feet, I thought it'd look pretty cool as well as making her able to stand.

Any idea what I could use? I know there's translucent sculpey but you have to bake that, and I'd rather sculpt it directly onto the figure.

The other day at wal-mart I saw some clear Krylon spray on paint. I don't know if it will work but its worth a try?

I see. Will that work for my fingers too then :P Usually I use my fingers, random screwdrivers and a games workshop modeling knife. That works fairly well for me.

Yes it will work with youre fingers thats wat I use.

That sounds about right though wouldn't it be inherently difficult to sculpt with glue?

You can do that with Epoxi. Curently I am working on a custom that I a have partily schulpted all his limbs with Epoxi glue.

It's not really practical for me to make a mould I'm afraid. I really need to stick it to the base of the figure.

I was wondering the same thing. I figured out you can schulpt simple things with Apoxie. Just be carfull because it is very hard to work with and dries fast.

It might take the use of a simple mold to form it but you could use clear hot glue.
