I'm crossing over from the acrylic forum. May be over here a lot more in the future.
At the moment I want to create a giant band-aid. Like 3 feet or so.
So my first try was a round band-aid out of clay. DISASTER. Clay is too thick. No one knew what it was - people thought it was a bee-hive.
Then I thought some plastic, like shower curtain material and use a hole punch. But it will not bump up properly where the white padding should be, it more folds. And it won't keep the shape. (Also if you look at a bandaid through a magnifier or loop, all the little holes sort of pucker up a bit. They are not really flat. I'd like to capture this effect, if possible).
Fabric won't work, no way to make all those holes that won't unravel.
Then I thought - what about moulding material? Some of it is even the beige band-aid color. But I don't even know where to start. I thought, make a foam band-aid shape that sticks up where the padding is, then put a million chopsticks in it for the holes. Then pour or brush on moulding material. And let the moulding material be the final piece, after I take out the foam and chopsticks. Would this work? And what kind of moulding material should I use? Any better ideas?
