No, it's not about concerning to hot-looking serial killers... yet, but I was with the idea of making a Palanca Toy from the very beginning I adopted the artist's name "Palanca". First it was the cutouts, then I wanted some latex toys I never performed. Accidentaly later, I found a cheaper but more delicate way of working like the mattress foam, and lately I was only thinking some less risky material since I could be allergic to foam (specially when I'm trimming it!). I want to work on sewing pattern design... but for making toys only! That's why I'm trying to figure it out with the measurements and geometry... boy, it's a science! The human face itself is some sort of complicated architecture... I need help, can someone like craftworkers, toymakers, cloth pattern makers (tailors?) please contact me? I'll really appreciate your help!

You might want to look at the makerbot, a 3d printer that works in plastic. Do your 3d wireform on the computer and print.
