Hello, I'm new here and I wanted some advice with my Capt. Falcon cosplay. (sorry if this is the wrong place to post this btw) Anyway, I made a captain falcon helmet using tin foil as a frame, newspaper to fill in the shape and duct tape to hold it all together, i also just put a layer of model magic. My question being, is how can i make the model magic look more smooth? Can I sand it or layer more on or what? I'm at a loss. Thanks. c:

You can't really do much with model magic since it stays relatively soft without heating it. Coat the outside of the helmet in Bondo, let it harden and sand it down until its flat and smooth.
