Hazzer2008 Posted: May 28th 2008

oh thx anyway guys:D

katie Aardman Staff Posted: May 29th 2008

I have heard that there will be a new W&G modelling kit coming out later this year, similar to this Shaun the Sheep one:

The new kit should be available in the shops at the end of August/start of September - we'll keep you posted!

Harry Posted: May 29th 2008

Katie, please if there is a new one can it have Newplast, I have some newplast now but I have never had the Wallace and Gromit modelling kit. I will buy this one.

Hazzer2008 Posted: Jun 2nd 2008

hi katie thx for the reply and i cant wait for the modelling kit to come out. good luck at aardman.:D

I'd safely say that newplast has got to be the best stuff to use, it's pretty thick stuff, so you'll have to warm it up a bit before you sculpt. As it is so thick however, it won't end up collapsing under the heat of studio lighting, perfect if you're going to be at it for a couple of hours.

As for the wallace and gromit model kit, (I presume you mean the plasticine one as there are some airfix kits too) I believe that some Hobbycraft stores may still have some on the shelves. Because not many places have these anymore, it might be that the price on the kit will have been reduced.

conty Posted: Jul 2nd 2008

Anim8tor Posted: Sep 19th 2008

Hootmat Posted: Oct 3rd 2008

I buy Newplast from a great shop in London, Try to get a good selection, then use proffesional armature wire with masking/cloth tape wrapped round it as an armature.

there is a great site called 'alec tiranti tools' that suplies my uni modeling stuff, i have also bought stuff frm them too. they sell the newplast plasticine, so if u dnt have a shop near u try the site. they have loads of other modeling things too, so take a look.


entish Posted: Nov 9th 2008

Not very proffessional, but good enough, I use play-clay. Don't mistake it for play do, it's proper plasticine with an annoying name

BJWanlund Posted: Nov 25th 2008

i use newplast. it's a bit hard at first but it's very firm and smells nice:Dwhich is always a good thing!

vamstarz Posted: Jan 3rd 2009

I use Newplast too. I find that some colours are softer than others, not sure if it is to do with teh pigment. Anyway, I find it great stuff =D

I use it all the time in my claymations it is not too soft and has a good level of malleability! ;)
