    Ok, that is frakking genius.  Nice work, sir!

    • Such kind eloquent words 🙂   Thanks.

      I have to admit I’m loving the possibilities. My next step is probably casting a complete figure.

    I’d recommend it Kevin. You’ll balk when you first open it, the bottles look so wee, but it lasts quite a while; I managed to get four moulds(three “sprues” of four heads apiece, and a Terminator-sized miniature), and that was with several cockups before I got the process down right. The detail reproduction using the GS/Magic Sculp mix is excellent.

    The only problem I have with it is I can never cut the mould in half right.

    Can this be done without the liquid bluestuff by using the bluestuff putty mix? 

    I had an order of the putty bluestuff a while ago and because I’m an Australian it takes for ever to get here. I kinda have a deadline for my models and a new order wont get here in time…

    • Sure, but the results won’t be as good.

      You should check out this great guide on From The Warp: http://fromthewarp.blogspot.co.uk/2011/11/molding-and-casting-shoulderpads.html

        What do you think would be the quickest you could get Liquid Blue stuff to Australia from where you are? I’ve tried the putty and your right, quality isn’t as good, and with all the little crevices in a Deathwatch shoulder pad I need to get as much detail as I can I think…

        • Most Airmail from the UK is delivered within 3 to 5 working days but Australia always gets the short end of the stick. I’d expect delivery to take more like 5 to 10 days on average.

          Standard Airmail to Australia costs me above £6 on this item. I’d estimate the “Airsure” service to be a day faster but also more than double the cost.

    so i know you been way from this page for sometime but these tutorials are very helpful still. However i have been having trouble most the the magic links are now broken or they stopped supplying i have tried a mix of milliput superfine white but is giving me a bad texture. Are there other things i could try? PS. i live in Australia and some of the suppliers i found don’t send to me… or cheaply.

    • Hi, yeah it’s been a while, but I’ll be back on form soon, got some new projects, and I want to get back to making some tutorials.

      As for the Magic Sculp, I had the same issue recently, I couldn’t find anyone selling the product I had been using. In the end I bought some from Sylmasta in the UK.

      http://www.sylmasta.com/acatalog/Creative_Magic_Sculp.html

      It has the same name (Magic Sculp) but it is a slightly different product from what I was using. However, I find it a better product, a little stickier to start with but nice and soft. In all likelihood I’ll be sticking with this product (mixed with Green Stuff of course).

      Not sure what Sylmasta’s shipping rates are though.

      I’m actually tempted to make a large purchase of the stuff and make it available through this site as cheaply as possible in future. Same goes for Clayshaper tools.

Found one place but they charge crazy shipping as they have a deal with dangerous goods. eg like $75 dollars staring price. for one $5 dollar item. so if you did supply them i would be grateful.
