Next process after the intial sculpt is to make a mould, and do a resin pour for the prototype. You're wondering why I'm doing all of this, instead of just sending the finished sculpt to VTSS for production. Its because I want to send Vince (VTSS) a resin prototype, and not a figure made of super sculpey (which is breakable). Also, I want to paint a finished prototype so Vince knows what colours I want and where.
I enjoy this process very much, however it does take some time, since you dont want to make any errors. It takes about a full day to properly cure the silicone, and with 2 halves, it takes 2 days to finish one mould.
Making a clay base.
I use foam core boards to create a box. I find this method easier.
Stevie's body....ready for some silicone!
One half of the silicon poured, the clay is taken out, and ready for the other half of silicone!!
