    I’m wanting to create the tap for the second “replacement animation” exercise in the Beginners Stop motion course. Having tried using plasticine, which is too soft and therefore is easily nudged (unintentionally) I want to cast or mold it so it is solid. What approach do you suggest?

    I’ll answer my own question…
    I used plasticine for the tap as it didn’t need to be self-supporting. For the water droplets and the splashes I used polymer putty which sets rock-hard after 20-30 minutes but which does so gradually, and is therefore malleable for a decent period. Especially good for the splashes.
