The objectives of this dissertation were: 1) To selected the suitable material for Thai models’ construction. The raw materials were shell fabrics (cotton) and underlining (nonwoven). The shell fabrics consisted of light weight (A1), medium weight (A2) and heavy weight (A3). The underlining fabrics consisted of 8 mm. sponge (B1), 600 g/m2 polyester nonwoven and 200 g/m2 polyester nonwoven (B3). Therefore, there were nine sets of combination between the shell fabrics and underlining fabrics. The first was A1B1. The others were A1B2, A1B3, A2B1, A2B2, A2B3, A3B1, A3B2 and A3B3. All of nine sets had been tested before and after of tensile strength and bursting strength. 2) To construct and evaluate the performance of the developed models. Thai standard size models were made as body sculptures by papier – mache techniques. Three male models and three female models were made in Thai standard size by using three of the best materials sets with the particular six models.

The results were as follows: 1) A2B2, A3B2 and A3B3 were strong regarding to before and after of tensile strength and bursting strength. After that, all of them had been used to make 3 male models and 3 female models by using papier – mache techniques for performance test. 2) The model no. 2 had the highest score which that was higher than No.1 and No.3. Consequently, the No.2 of male model which was the highest one. The model. No.2 was A3B2. In the future, with having the Thai standard size models, this would reduce importing of the models from oversea which were more expensive and would help rising and supporting of Thai handmade local products.
