This is really fantastic, it never occurred to me to use modeling clay before.

So I've made armor and props with crayola before, but is there anything you can do to prevent it from falling apart when wet or sweaty? I even put on paint/primer and it didn't last.

That is an excellent question. I've never tried re-wetting model magic after it's fully dry, but considering how fragile it is, I'm not surprised it would fall apart. I know Akuriko (akuriko.deviantart.com/) created her armor for Zelda out of model magic and then covered it with resin. While I haven't tried it myself, it could be a great way to reinforce it and seal it from moisture.

I've worked with resin, so maybe I'll have to give that a try. I love y our stuff, and her stuff too! Thanks for the response. <3

GREAT JOB! :) I've been wanting to do a chase plate for an Asuka cosplay :) . I have cute accessories from www.cosplaysushi.com that'll suite the creative reveal.

For your last photo, I would love to see how you make the shape of the armor close fitting like that, I am working on my cosplay of Vayne from league and this is just a wonderful tutorial! I am doing her aristocrat skin.

You mention you can "seal" it with glue. How would you go about that?  Also, what kind of glue?
