Can't make up my mind about how to do Capt. America's chainmail/scales  Undecided
I really don't want to sacrifice a figure to do it, either.

2 options.You either need to get a figure with Scales and make a reverse Mould of their scales and stamp that into your epoxy.Or,get some medical hypodermic Needles 21 & 18g,grind down the tips just a tad and make chain mail.Although that is a very tedious,but very effective, job.
Some Customisers buy cheap Glomesh bags off Ebay and use that for Mail,hate that one myself.

This is what I'm thinking of doing. Suggestions for what to use for making the mould?

Oh, I will. Just need a game plan for the scales. At the moment all that's left for the sculpting in the scales, head wings and shield.

Okey doke,this is gonna take you a bit of time but it's worth it.For your first Mould use whatever you like,Das,Sculpey,Epoxy doesn't really matter.Some guys even use Plasticine for this part but that's too weak if you ask me,but i digress.
Find a good,flat spot to make an impression and press your Epoxy/whatever into the scales.You only need a stamp of a small area,don't try to make a massive one as when you try to stamp into tight areas you won't get an effective,uniform result.
Let your stamp cure of course,then it's time to make the reverse stamp that will eventually be the one you will be using.
Coat the inside of your Mould with vaseline to make sure the new pour won't stick.You'll have to get yourself some casting Resin,mix it up and pour it into your original Mould.Careful of air bubbles,give it a few light taps i find usually gets rid of them.Believe me casting can be tricky,i found like most things you have to practice a bit to get it right.
Once it's dry you have your stamp.Spread your Sculpey/Epoxy over the area you want to cover in Mail and go for it.Take your time to make sure it all lines up.
This is an abridged version for you,hope it helps. Grin
