    Good monumental pose! Looks seriously. Нow I understand, the surface will be ground then?

    Nick,
    it's just a base for photographing, for a figure I like to see it on a little square.
    In the end it could be fun to have a little plate casted, measuring this square on which the figure fits.

    Ok, I see, René.;)
    I meant a surface of the figure. You prefer to grind a figure after molding or smooth it in operating time?

    ow haha :), ok.

    this is very rudimental, raw at the moment.
    I just sort out the lining of the figure first, not even worrying about detail.
    I had my girl photographed in this pose today with a broom in her hand and will check somethings before I start smoothening anything.

    I do not grind figures, I polish by brushing but love to work with terpentine for smoothening sections.

    I too like such method too. Details - in the last turn.
    And I use as the tool stomatologic silicone shaper. It very soft also allows to smooth a surface in operating time.

    I noticed you do great things with magic sculpt Nickolay. I prefer the thermoclay and its endless operatingtime.

    Thanks, René!
    So I tried to work with thermoclay, but after all found the best for me - epoxy materials, such as "Magic" or "Moment Epoxilin" and Tamiya "Epoxy Putty".
    By the way, sometimes I use "Johnson's Baby" oil for smoothening.

    Nicks...
