Re: How to create a Cardassian?

I'm not sure silly putty would work...
You could buy a mask.
Otherwise, I'd say get a close-up of a Cardassian, preferably a couple of angles.
Start, preferably, with some kind of flexible material for the ridges that could be glued on (make sure you can get it off!) Then, cover the whole thing with the all-over gray base coat. Then do the unique scales with a darker colour.

You can't use most things, paper mache, some clays etc because they shrink when dry, and almost be careful of clay, some of its toxic. But according to this website, there is a kind of plaster...
