Plastic carving


Recommended Posts

Hi guys! This is the method I am using

I usually use these tools for carving: two curved blades and diagonally cut and sharpened needle (about 0.8mm)

I do not use the blade handle so I can work more precisely

At first I cut roughly, forming the main relief:

Later I start to detailing. I do not use a knife with a straight blade for carving, I try not to make a flat relief. Usually, I shave the relief with the top of the blade.

After blades the relief becomes very bumpy:

I smooth out the relief with a diagonally cut and sharpened needle

Then sandpaper.

I wanted to crush the muffler more, so I glued a little piece of plastic to make it wider:
