I have decided to up my skills a bit and try my hand at vac forming. I've been working on a table with an approximately 18" x 12" workable area. I've been reading a lot of information about it, but wanted to get a fresh reply as to suggested materials for form off of.
I am leaning towards the method of starting with a clay, forming, and then refining from there. I intend to begin with the sandtrooper radio panel, so tool suggestions are welcomed as well for the shaping.
Locally, I have Michael's and Blick Art Materials as suppliers (likely more actually in San Diego).
Can anyone recommend specific materials? Thanks.
