I am new here, just getting into mini figures and I love their aesthetic.
I am decently skilled in 3D modelling and have some background in art. I have done casting, but only in plaster and concrete and on a much larger scale. So before I jump into modeling and buying materials I have few questions.
- What silicone are people using for their casts? Are there any recommended brands? Any to avoid?
- I really like the rubbery minis, so this is what I would like to start with. Again - any recommended brands, or ones that are close to any established figure brands (MUSCLE, Monster in my pocket, etc.)
- Looking at the customs over here, it seems they were sculpted mostly by hand. While hand sculpting is something I would like to get into, I was wondering has anyone done casts of 3d prints (e.g. printing in high detail smooth resin) and making a mold from that. I don't expect this being an issue, but I would be interested in experiences of others.
