I'm making an Assassin's Creed 2 costume for a con and am currently working on the belt insignia portion first to get that out of the way.
I made one already out of Sculpey, but was silly and just made the pieces separately, so the whole back support is lacking, so I'm making another one. I also live in a small apartment with little air flow, so using chemical mixes for some techniques may not be possible for me to do.
My question is what do you guys suggest as a material that I use for the insignia? Its very detailed, with etchings and layers. But at the same time, its also at a location that is very movement heavy, so I want to make sure its secure and won't break at all (since its on the belly). Is polymer clay a good option to use, or would another material be better for the detail and strength?
