hi everyone
i am currently working on a custom 1/6 project and i have realized that i need to add bulk to a body a fill in the definition of the body (so they are not as "ripped") does anybody have any suggestions?
i have never sculpted before so any links to guides would also be great.
thanks in advance.

I did the same thing that Big Dave did for one of my figures with the Aves Apoxy. If you mix it exactly equal parts and knead it really good, there's nothing better to use than Aves. You don't have to be a sculpting expert either and the hardening time is a few hours so you can experiment with it, and not have to wait too long before it's done. You can also use milliput for this, and it's available at Hobby Lobby. Once it's hard, you can sand down any imperfections.

I find that Boat Epoxy is nice and simple to work with. It dries very quickly though. Make sure to use small amounts. Useful tools for any build up material... exacto knives, dental tools, files, toothpicks, sandpaper, etc... You'll also find that your hands are very useful. :) Go into an art supply store and pick up a bag of sculpting tools.
