What I plan to maybe do is to make the figures out of wax, do a negative cast out of plaster, two pieces,like a book opening. then wire the plaster cast with some copper wire following approximate center lines of body, arm, legs and anchoring the wire in the plaster a bit. then follow up with tope colour silicon and let dry. The result should leave a silicon figure with the ability to hold whatever shape the wire (ultimately the modeller) takes. Kind of like gumby. Remember Gumby?? Tope is approx. my skin colour, although to keep up with other skin colours, silicon will come in almost any colour.
Does this sound like it will work?? I'm all ears Cheers, Manfred
I need to experiment and show some step-by-step pics. :?
