      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

This being a model cars forum, I hope you all don't mind me asking this.

I want to create my own figure sculpture and cast it.I need to know what the best clay to use so it doesn't dry out while I'm working day to day.

Next, tips and material use for casting a mold and then tips on casting the figure in resin or vinyl, neither of which I have ever done.

With all the talent and knowledge here, I believe I can get some good info and tips.

Thanks,

RowdyYates

As far as the sculpting goes, try Fimo or Sculpey...you can get it at craft stores. They are a polymer clay that stays plyable until you bake it in your home oven, then it gets hard like porcelain. Don't know anything about casting so maybe someone else can help you there.
