Amazing, simply amazing :D

They look so realistic, keep up the awesome work ;)

PS: can we get some pictures of the diorama from a ways back? I'd like to see how big the whole set is if possible 8)

Thanks.
I don't have it assembled now, but I'll post pictures as soon as I do.  ;)
It measures at 28"L x 19"W x 8"H

I'm working on one for my 12" figures now. (not done yet)

The base figure is the Konami Facehugger.
All the rest is apoxi sculpt.  ;)
Then paint.

Here is a WIP picture:

Yup.  ;)

How did you keep it to stick? Is it just super glue or whatever? :-\

It adheres its self.
No glue needed.

Apoxi sculpt ehh?

What kind of paints?

Does the parts not covered in Apoxi sculpt have to be sanded?

Do you apply a wash coat before painting?

Details man!

NIce stuff!

As I said before in my previous posts... I didn't make it myself, I had it commissioned.
I can't sculpt for shi  !   :-\

The Apoxi isn't flexible at all. It'd crack if I tried to move it.
I'd advise casting it in silicone if you're looking for flexibility.

As for the paint. Use Acrylic paints. Enamel paint can "eat" the figure.

No sanding or wash coat was used, however, I do recommend washing it with soap water before you start.

FACEBOX, did you make that diorama or buy. If it's bought, where did you buy it?
