    Tips on Clothing folds

    I am new to 1/6 scale modeling and am seeking tips tutorials on clothing folds. I have read about hairspray & other methods but seeking more information on how to conform and hold natural folds of clothing. Thanks in advance.

    I have used spray starch. I try to use very little and use a small hobby iron to press the crease. Don't get it to hot or it could burn melt some fabric. Try first on some inexpensive outfit to test your skills.

    Thank you for the reply. Have you heard of using other methods? I was looking at this website and noticed the realistic folds and drapery of the uniforms and was trying to figure out the techinque to achieve these results.

    would this work on a long sleeve police shirt maybe?

    Another methode is making the clothes wet, put them on the figure and bring it in position.
    When it's dry it looks very realistic and hangs much better on the figure.
