Hmm looks like greenstuff, and if you use Fimo won't it break if used used to make a mould?

Fimo is just fine for making moulds, a lot of sculptors use polymer clays. One thing you do need to be careful with though is baking it to ensure you don't get any cracks. To avoid this I bake on a lower temp for a little bit longer, allowing it to gradually heat up in the oven and then leaving it in once the oven is off to cool down gradually.

Fimo is actually a pretty commonly used medium so I imagine it must be ok for making moulds as many sculptors seem to use it. And I’m guessing it looks like green stuff because it’s green fimo? It comes in all kinds of colours.

Absolutely, fimo is great! This is Fimo Professional Green - it does indeed come in many colours. :)

Ahah green fimo ! I was sure he had a trick:ROFLMAO:

Still an excellent job, :notworthy:

Is this fishnet stockings on the legs ?

Thanks Pazazu. What you can see on the thighs is actually going to be quilted leather, when I've refined it. Proper 90s ;)

Wow, you make me want to dig out my long forgotten Fimo package. Does fresh portion of Fimo sticks good to already baked one?

Do it! (y)

Fimo doesn't stick too well to cured clay, however you can get around this by applying a small layer of epoxy putty (green stuff, ProCreate etc.) to the cured fimo, then the new fimo will stick very well to that (stick it on whilst the epoxy putty is still wet).

Fantastic! i know what you’re saying she is going to be, but at this stage she could easily become an Orlock or Van Saar, or an up-armored Escher!
