    Sebastien, Anders thanks. The lamellar armour was cut from thin strips of cured putty, sanded to shape and put on ONE by ONE !!! So you can imagine the fun :):)

    Great sculpting Stephen .
    Just a question :
    I normally use a mixture of duro and MS , because I always have problems with a sticky substance as pure MS . How do you handle magic sculpt.

    Looks very nice, Stephen! I like the look on his face and the turn of the head too. I can't imagine making that armor! I'd glue my fingers together many times over. :D

    Is he going to be mounted on the horse you were working on a while back?

    Hi Stephen.

    I don't get into the vBench very much but was just "snooping"
    around. This looks very interesting. Will pop back in to see
    the progress.
    Thank you for your input at MFCA. I will be sending you an email.
    But appreciate the time you spent with me.

    Marc, thanks. When I use a Duro/MS mix it's usually for paricular effects like mail, hair, fur etc. because I like th strength of MS and the elasticity of Duro. I handle MS on its own by using a lot of Isopropyl alcohol and to avoid that initial stickinenss I usually lave it there for a few minutes. Hope this helps.

    Hey Wendy, thanks. True, the armour was very time consuming to do but not that hard as a whole. And I still need to add the threading :(
