You can but this is usually a procedure for restorations on china. For thicker application, I don't think I would trust it not to crack on the surface.

Just curious. Are you talking about making changes to somebody else's model?

HI. can you buy milliput sculpting material from the art shops where you live because that is the correct material to use to model your own soldiers also with existing soldiers they cut the hands arms and heads of and rearrange there pose and then use silicon moulds if you want to make low melt metal soldiers you would buy heat resistant silicon and you would melt the metal over a cooker ring
