anybody know how to go about seperating a solid sculpture? i guess this would be done more as a garage model kit than an action figure, and i guess that's kinda what i want to do. i want to do an original sculpt statue about 6" - 8" tall, and then dismantle it for casting. but i want to make sure that i start out with the correct ideas about finishing it off correctly. in other words, i don't want to spend a few weeks sculpting only to find out that i should have used tin foil over the wire armature or something like that.

any good websites that explain this process?

I think every sculpt using more than 1/4" thickness of material, sculpey recommends using tin foil. However, since you didn't mention sculpey, I'm jumping to conclusions here... tongue.gif...what are you sculpting and what is it going to be sculpted out of?

yeah, i'm using sculpey, and i'm going to try and sculpt a darth vader/obi wan kenobi ep3 duel, but i wanted to be able to split it up and possibly make some kind of garage style kit out of it.
