Here are some WiP shots of the breastplate that I've been working on. The base is Wonderflex, with some added Bondo and Paper Mache. All of the details are made from craft foam and sanded by hand to get the rounded edges and shapes. It helps to use a blade or a pair or scissors to trim down the hard angles before sanding anything into its final shape.
The images are kinda... meh, poor lighting and the breastplate still needs some refining, but hopefully you get an idea of what's going on.
Hope this helps. For finer details, I still use the same method and either build up with the foam, or use the blade method and some sandpaper to carve details into the foam. If you have any questions feel free to PM me or check out my facebook link on my profile here. It doesn't have many images yet as I have to venture yonder for my interwebz.
