I have never modded a case before, nor molded anything, nor do I know that much about modding in general, so this will probably end up being a horrid idea but what the hell, worth a shot. I love very detailed mods, from fancy colors and lots of tubes to strange cases. I have may ideas but this one falls under strange cases. I want to build a sculpture of one of the characters from the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic then build a computer inside of it. Simple as that. I am not so much worried about dimensions right now as figuring out a way to actually build it so I am going to keep that out of the thread. I have no clue how I am going to do it, but I WILL get this build done, even with my very minimal experience. Thing is I have no clue where to start, I know what I want but not how to get it. I want the sculpture to have a smooth finish, but not breaking the bank. I have never sculpted before but am willing to take the time to learn. The way I see it, is if you screw up you can always fix it. My question is, how should I start? What materials should I use? I have heard people say paper mache but I am not sure if that can get the finish I want or if it is even a good material to use. I am leaning toward fiberglass molding around a pre-bought base (probably a kids rocking horse or something) then hollow the whole thing out. Will that get the smooth finish I want? Plastic would work best but that is a big build. ( I figure 3 1/2 feet would be ideal, what do I know though?) and that would take A LOT of plastic, money, and screw ups. It all seems to bring me back to fiberglass but a friend told me to ask here to see what you all thought and so I am. Any thoughts/ideas/tips would be greatly appreciated, I am going to need all the help I can get.
