Hi guys!

I spent these days playing with new materials, and I took some pics of one of my trying sessions. I think it’s a good idea to put all together and show you what happened these days with the new materials I got. This is an explanation about what I did, not a real tutorial because I’m pretty sure there are hundreds of better ways to do this.

I used natural liquid latex and dental plaster for this. I think these materials are not specially interesting for small scales but I think they are really good for basing and for large scale stuff, vehicles or whatever. Try them and tell me what you think!

I wanted to make a dental plaster copy of a piece of wall I made some time ago just to make it easy to carve and sand.

I started preparing a place to make the mould using a plastic piece and some tape to fill the gaps between the plastic and the piece:

The next pic shows the backside of the plastic, as you can see the tape fills the holes of the sides:

The idea is just to cover the space between the piece and the plastic. See the effect?

Now it’s the time to add the latex all over the preform of the mould. The latex must be added in thin layers to let it dry correctly.

First we add a thin layer of latex and we let it dry, we go on with new layers until the surface is flat. In this case 4 layers were enough. The videos are in spanish because it’s my mother language but I promise to make some videos in english. Don’t worry, you can follow the videos with the english subtitles!

Just that, I hope you enjoy it.

C&C are welcome!


  • I recommend this tutorial by Scratch Attack (It’s in Spanish).

Hi guys!

Yesterday I discovered a really interesting page to upload 3D designs.
You can upload on any file format, and the page allows the watchers to spin the model and move it correctly to see it perfectly.

As user, there’s no limit of models or size and you can edit the rendering preferences of the models on the page…

Just that, I hope you like the page, I added the Jabba sketch as a try, it works fine.

If you want to check it, here is the link to the model and to the page:

Kisses.

I’m here again!

Hey guys!

I’m coming again after some time finishing university stuff. I’ve got some ideas on my mind and few works I started during the year which I want to finish as soon as possible.

I sculpted a little bit today and old works are nearer to the end, I’m happy with that.

Yesterday I bought some natural liquid latex and I want to make some tries with that, I’ll keep you informed with the result and I’ll maybe make a tutorial here.

On the other hand, I’ve been speaking with some dudes to make a couple of 32mm miniatures for their range and I would like to share here with you the process but maybe I have to wait until the miniatures are finished. I’ll ask them about that.

And I think that’s all about this time… There are many ideas for miniatures but step by step… 😉

A big hug, my friends. Thanks for the waiting.
