    Well I was watching Transformers Animated this morning and I saw that Bumblebee has a battle mask. Well that got my wheels turning. I figured since I modified the stingers to fold all the way back like they should I might as well mod the face mask. SO its just regular clay I use for my mold making. I have never used it before so I don't know how long its going to take to dry but once it does I plan on casting a mold and make a plastic piece that can be removed. So what do you think? Its a minor mod but I like it and it looks more show accurate to me.

    Thanks guys! If and when the clay ever dries it will get some light sanding to smooth out the rough edges. Any thoughts on how to get the clay to dry quicker without ruining the head?

    I was curious about that. I have a heat gun but I'm sure I would end up with a yellow & blue puddle.
