naisor (7 dag(en) geleden) #56955331Interesting post, and very job there. I was wondering from your previous photos what materials you used to make figures over 100cm tall.
Is the PU paintable? Or do you have to prepare the surface somehow?
I suppose you glue all the pieces together, or do you prepare some connections? (like the hair front piece from the other figure)
I usually use paperclay as my main material to work. However, I take forever to make a figure, cause I'm always trying to "perfect" some parts here and there, I could take month or years (my workload and constant traveling doesn't help either). But I have prepare a little permanent space to work whenever I got spare time (and don't spend it setting up things), and after seeing your first entry in your diary I thought maybe I should make a blog to explain also how I do proportions, pre-forms and poses for my figures.


Thank you,...well Polyurethan foam is by far the most un-complicated material there is to build with/ sculpt Anime Figures of mid and Big sizes of all kind, ...you could even build a 20 feet tall Gundam for your Garden if you want to, and you dont have to burn the material like all kinds of clay to establish a resistant surface, just ad some waterbased primer to your surface and paint it after with every coulor you like,...

You dont need any " preperation time " for it, like with clay´s or epoxy´s...
Best of all it the material cost,...almost laughable,..the PU cost foa Nagato was about 20 USD,
and her total material cost all together incl. paint, not even 100 Buck´s

Well my very first Figure i sculpted was a Strike witch, and i glued every single part together,
wich was the biggest mistake you can possibly make at that scale... A statue at that size is almost impossible to transport, especially when you go to any conventions, and if you want to carry more then 1 arround it is just impossible... after that i did make all parts de-tachable for my Figures especially the hair with all the very fine pointy tips...

For the connections, they are made usually from woodstick wich hold together only by the density of the PU, how that works will be covered in one of my folowing tutorials, wich i plan to release on a weekly schedule :)

Yes, that´s the Spirit...you should definetly do a tutorial, ...there is always more than just one way to reach your Goal :)
