There are generally three kinds of commonly used materials: PVC, resin and clay PVC, which generally mean that the plastic has low cost and good performance and is suitable for mass production, but it is difficult to process, which is not suitable for personal DIY. The processing method is generally one-time casting molding or 3D printer. The most common representative is the Gouda model.
Custom Resin Figures
Custom resin figurines usually refers to the organic polymer that has a softening or melting range after being heated, and tends to flow under external force during softening. It is solid, semi-solid, or sometimes liquid at room temperature. Broadly defined, any polymer compound that can be used as raw material for plastic products processing is called resin. The advantage is that the plastic property of resin material is very strong, and it can be used to make various shapes.

Clay is a cohesive soil with few sand particles. It is not easy for water to pass through and has good plasticity. Common clay is formed by weathering of silicate minerals on the earth’s surface. It is generally weathered in situ. It is called primary clay or primary clay if the particles are large and the composition is close to the original stone. The clay is mainly composed of silica and alumina. It is white and fire-resistant. It is the main raw material for preparing porcelain clay.
