not sure what brittle meens looking on wiki its talking about bursting/breaking under stress?
is that what it meens?
Because if thats what it meens, well i haven't seen my "action"-figures falling apart yet..
not sure if the stuff is proper for casing, but then again, if nowone actually tested it..
maybe differences in thickness makes differences in how much presure it can handle?
You know what, i'll make 2 small flat strips with different thickness and see if it breaks if i try to bend it a little.
any suggesions on how i could check how much pressure it can withstand?
doing some more reading, found out the Sculpey stuff discussed above, also is available in different types, "premo sculpey" is stiff in thicker parts, and flexible in thinner parts.... (have no experience with sculpey though, just read this while googling)
For Fimo, i know it is available in (atleast)3 different types each with slightly different uses.
but i'll try to do a breakpoint test ... still need suggestions on howto do a "good test".
