Paperclay help
Hey there
I am making a chest piece of armour and I am ready to paper clay it. One thing is confusing me though - The chest piece needs to be put in a very particular way on my chest so it fits properly and if I'm not wearing it it does not fall in that exact position.
If I paper clay it when its off, will I be able to pull it to where it needs to be on my body or should I paper clay with it on something my size?

Like normal clay paperclay is malleable when fresh out of the pack and dries rigid.

If you cover your armour with it, you will need to mould it to your shape before it dries (possibly do it in sections). If you clay the armour and let it set off your body you won't be able to shape it afterwards.

Do you have a reference image of the chest piece you are making? Have you considered using worbla?
