So it's my first time I have ever done a head sculpt. I am pretty much finished, but the client wants to order it for an action figure. The figure will either be 1/6th scale or 1/12th scale. What material is best to get the best details of his face, yet not break the bank?


I was thinking Fine Detail, but have never ordered anything in any type of plastic except a small ring in Polished Alumide

I am worried that although WSF is strong, it may miss alot of the details or be too porous. He will get it painted by a hobbyist that paints miniatures.
