I was wondering if people use an internal support system for models to enable figures to be molded into poses? I recently made a buzz lightyear figure and was very frutrated trying to get the arms into a curved pose. I want to make a Power rangers figure in a rather animated position but i just can't work out how to do this - does anyone have any suggestions or advice on how you do this? Tfl
Can anyone help???!
Maybe by using Artista Soft instead?
i make a bit of figures, what i found works best is using an internal structure of wire that is wraped, so it's pretty sturdy, i usually twist it and double it for the main body, then cut arm length (double cause you will be twisting it) and then attach to body. same with legs. sorry i dont' know what gauge wire it was, but it was covered with a brown paper-purchased from micheals. i used to use small bamboo sticks for support-but like you i wanted the flexibility. and i also use a mixture of modeling choc./fondant. more working time! hth-good luck!!
