I have created a generic figure torso using sculpey. I created this piece and then made a 2-piece mold of it using silicone caulk like you buy at walmart. Next, I injected hot melt glue into the silicone mold, put the mold together and out came my solid, hot melt torso i needed.
Ok, great. NOW, here is the part i need help with. I want to sculpt new details onto this hot melt casting using super sculpey. It sculpts onto the stuff great. The only problem is that when i put the piece into my makeshift oven (cardboard box covered on the inside with tin foil with a hair dryer fed into the side), the sculpey cures, BUT the hot melt glue melts. The curing temp of sculpey is 275 degrees F. Hot melt glue is only like 135 deg. F.
So, therein lies the problem. Can anyone think of a solution for my problem? I've thought about using air-drying clay, but i bought some today and it sucks bad. Well, it is the crayola brand stuff so i wasnt expecting much. Are there any decent air drying polymer clays out there that are about like super sculpey? I need fine details.
Please help! Thanks!
