Hi, As you can see from the picture I'm having trouble finding a material which I can cover the ball and socket and hinge armature (mostly brass and steel) with, which the clay will hold on to, so it…Continue

"Hello, I feel I am a little late to this tread. But maybe this will help. I paint rubber latex on my armature. I give it 2 or 3 thin coats. Don't put talcum powder or anything on it. let it stay sticky. once it dries completely, I paint a…"

"Oh, that's a pity.  So you are restricted to a purely mechanical key in that case. It needs to be something like a metal mesh, perhaps. Hmm.... Have you used Polymorph? It is a bit like a very solid version of hot glue, in that it can be…"

"Thanks Simon. I found out in my last film that you can't melt newplast... I guess I'll try and find some Van Aken when the shops open. Does anyone know of a good place to get it online or not?"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Jacob Lee's discussion Newplast clay not sticking to fabric tape
"I don't use clay, but have found in a book that the way to get clay to stick to wire (and I reckon this will apply to stuff like fabric tape) is to melt the clay for a first layer. It will then penetrate the tape and hold firm. Subsequent…"

Newplast clay not sticking to fabric tape

Hi, As you can see from the picture I'm having trouble finding a material which I can cover the ball and socket and hinge armature (mostly brass and steel) with, which the clay will hold on to, so it doesn't crack and fall off all the time as it does here. I'm currently using black fabric tape. Is there any sort of thing I can cover the metal with which will do the job?How do Aardman do it? I guess they have clothes on don't they. Any help would be amazing!Cheers,Jacob…See More

"Simon - i tend to avoid dimmers in ever situation if at all possible, so yes. It introduces colour shifts which again would unbalance my lighting and its almost always the reason for any flicker- that and the old kettle going on! which is not that…"

"Just an update, I bought a Dedolight DLH2 and its having the same problem. Phil they are genuine arris. Both the Dedolight and Arri have dimmers, so maybe it's that, or maybe it's something to do with the power supply. But again strange…"
