    Hello,

    I like to ask u experienced members about some stuff u use.

    1. What is the best material to sculpt figure - clay, putty or others? I am looking for exact manufacturer.
    2. What stuff u use to make matrix for sculpted figure? Silicon manufacturer?
    3. And what kind of resin u use to cast figure? Best one for a reasonable price?

    Thanks:)

    ha-ha-ha. What difficult questions. On them it is impossible to give a definite answer. Everyone to you will tell on the.
    It is simpler to learn meaning of the life, than to receive answers to your questions

    There's definitely no best material for anything - each person has their own favourites, based on their own preferences.

    Some previous threads for more:
    Which modelling putty
    Whats every one using for putty these days
    Interested in sculpting but haven't tried?
    Calling all you Sculptors

    Where you are based would make a lot of difference here I think - the rubbers and resins most people might recommend from the US would be different to what's commonly used in Europe.
