Perfectly equipped with MP artware
For clay car modeling from the development to the finishing
From the beginning of the project – the initial idea – to the realization of the final prototype, MP artware is an experienced partner at the side of vehicle stylists all over the world. We distinguish five steps in the clay car modeling process: the basic visualization, the selection of a suitable clay, the preparation of all necessary modeling tools for the working of the clay, the application of the clay modeling film or foil and the final prototype in original size with the perfect design of all external shapes, joints, edges and surfaces as well as the interior area with the display elements.
A new car design is always a step into the unknown for the creative minds behind it: into a future that is still waiting to be put on the road - and to make the mobility of people around the world a little bit better. This first inspiration becomes an idea. The idea is envisioned in an analog or digital drawing and then visualized in accordance with technical and geometric specifications. The goal: finding the right combination of lines, sizes and proportions.
It all comes down to the right material –
the right clay
For the first time, the vision gets a visible shape: virtual models and clay models are made. The production from clay makes it possible to comprehend the shape completely and to achieve sculptural perfection: the ideal complement for digital design processes. The quality of the later model in terms of stability, moldability, level of detail, etc. depends on the quality of the clay used. At MP artware, you are always at the right address!
Industrial clay from MP artware
It all comes down to the right clay – MP artware's industrial clay/modeling clay made of oil and wax-based materials is specifically produced for automotive engineering as well as product design and has many benefits:
- excellent bonding properties
- very good sculptability by CNC milling, by hand or with templates
- optimal adhesion on wood, foam or painted surfaces
- high level of detail in the design
- does not break (if handled properly)
- ideal for perfect surfaces and edges thanks to a high density and flexibility

The working of the clay model
Through the combination of machining and filigree, sensitive handcrafting, clay models are often molded first on a small scale and then in original size. In this way, all details of the model can be included. First the exterior is designed, then the interior.Click here to get directly to your contact person
Our clay modeling films are available in the following colors:
with metallic effect
- gray metal
- machine silver
- tungsten silver
- rodium silver
- emerald blue
without metallic effect
- solid white
- transparent (clear)
The final prototype
Fascinating – a vision has become reality
The visible result of years of development work is nearing completion: the final prototype. After deciding on the final exterior and interior, the materials for the interior are selected and all display elements in the vehicle are designed.
Then the final prototype is finished by hand in original size and with the correct colors: interior and exterior form one unit. Finally, the model is captured in 3D data to produce the first real model. All joints, corners, edges and surfaces must already be perfectly shaped – there is no room for mistakes. A challenge for the professional and precise preparatory work, and thus for every single step of car clay modeling.
We at MP artware are happy to contribute to this result – with high quality tools and instruments, with extensive accessories, with personal service and advice, with experience and expertise. When dreams take shape, we are a part of it.
Make it happen!
