Hi guys,

I have seen some impreesive stuff here on HF over the years, now I would like to try my hand at sculpting too.

Recently I purchased some flexible wire and Milliput and I have an idea about what I want to do, but seeing as I have absolutely zero sculpting experience...some help or tips would be greatly appreciated!!

Cheers,

Shay

Hi Shay

There are many information in the Web, but try with this from my blog to start, maybe it can be useful to you.

If you never have sculpted, maybe it's a good idea start with a bust or something like that to take the skills, better than small figures that require more precision.

Up to you

I think you must start and then more concrete questions will appear and, always I can, I will treat to help you.

Good luck
Buena suerte

Hi guys,

Same as Shay, I'm interested to do some practice with sculpting. not because i want to build figures from zero, but I like to modify the existing ones.

Sculpting heads, it is impossible for me. I prefer to buy the Hornet heads and then concentrate the efforts on the body.

@ Fernando: I've checked your website. It is great, really interesting, with many tips and suggestions.
Thanks for posting

Cheers

Giovanni

Hi all.

Sorry for delay. I was very busy eating and drinking, bloody Christmas!!, I have gained one tonne, more or less.

I hope to see soon your figures, Shay.

Hi Giovanni, I started like you with 1/35 but I tried to create my own heads... Wrong way. Finally I decided to use Hornet's heads amd recently I have added the hands too (other modelistic Calvary).

Now I prefer to make busts and big figures to learn better to modelize, and certainly I discover new things everyday.

So, good modelling mates and Happy New Year.
