I'm currently in the process of putting together a mannequin, thannks to some of the ideas posted in one of the other threads.
What I really want is some poseable hands that can hold the blaster or do just about anything. I have come up with this idea, so let me know what you think.....
First I mix together something called Alginate, its like a rubbery/jelly kind of goop that hardens. I then put it in a bowl/bucket and drive a hand into it with fingers all spread out.
Once it dries (you can either use quick drying stuff that takes 5mins or slow drying) I remove my hands and am left with a cavity in the shape of my hand.
Next I get some wire coat hangers or thinnish wire rods and suspend them in the mould with one down each finger and thumb.
Next I mix up some silicone rubber and pour it into the mould.
Leave it to set and them remove a rubber cast hand from the mould.
Because the fingers have the wire in them it should be possible to bend them into shape, and the rubber allows them to move...such as a grip on an EE-3 for example!
I haven't yet tried it out in practice, but the theory sounds good. Let me know what you guys think.
