kommenttia Replicating figure base

  • kyoshinhei3 vuotta sitten#38677712As Selvaria said, I would also probably go with wood for the flat of the base and metal for the peg.
    As for the "footrest", the method depends on your budget.
    Premium method: Mold the existing shape with silicon putty then cast a copy with resin. Pros: exact replica, little skill involved. Cons: silicon putty is expensive and you'll also end up with a lot of resin left if you don't have other projects for it. You may need a precision scale for the mix too.
    Budget method: sculpt the footrest out of a piece of wood. Pros: cheap, allows for creativity. Cons: might take some trial and error to get it right.


    Although, I want a excact replicated base, I will try the low budget one.

    I got a figure replacement w/o base from GSC for Miku with one broken arm.

    I would probably use a wood disk as base plus epoxy resin to mold that piece where her foot rests, as a peg you can use a piece of metal rod.
