a question about miliput

Posted in Custom Workstation

I have been doing some customs for a few years now and I've decided to branch out and start sculpting. Now I know everyone recommends avis and all but I'm going through a budget crunch (who isn't). I read where some says miliput is sometimes fragile with thin parts, but how is it on broad work, like chest armor or arm and leg work?

I missed a few words there, I meant pieces that stick out from the figure, like pauldrons and such, will need some support while it cures because it will collapse without any support.

What do you mean by support?

It can be decent with larger parts, just make sure that when you are sculpting the pieces that they have support. Also I would recommend that you do the sculpting in sections and let a section cure completely before doing the next section; miliput can stay somewhat soft for a couple hours so it is easy to mess up.
