"Skinning" 123D cardboard model
Hey fellow Authors, i've been working on the following model for my business, strictly ornamental. I've come this far and don't know how to continue without destroying the time and money already invested. My goal is to cover it with some material and make it look like a statue. Maintaining still a polygonal feel to it. I want to paint it glossy red. I've thought about using fiberglass, plaster, paper (as found in a tutorial in the internet), Cover it with a pepakura mesh. But i'm still not sure how to proceed. I fear fiberglass to be too messy and complicated, plaster could ruin the cardboard dampening it, paper makes it look like a cheap piñata, pepakura would requiere a lot of trial and error to get the pieces to match the "skeleton" and problematic at the end to give it the glossy and professional feeling im looking for. Any ideas guys??
Sorry for the resolution on the first image, I didn't have my lap with me at the time of this post.
