Uncased this today when I got off work.
Here's the progression from final sculpt:

Encasing the master in rubber
Demolding often results in destruction. Make sure you did it right. :magni:
Had to buy more rubber. When I pulled the clay out of the fiberglass I had two 5 qt buckets full of the stuff, and that's how you figure the amount of rubber you need, approximately, for the mold. Well I only had 8 quarts, so had to wait on some more. :mozgus:
Should get rubbery tonight...
Nah, that's what I thought initially but the stitches are going to be way small. I will have to cut slits strategically somewhere, will find out when I test fit the mask. Mostly Griffith will, in an odd twist of fate, be guiding me along. This too is within the flows of causality. Or something...
Bandages are almost done. Just some patches to put in, but the wife is up in jersery visiting her grandparents so will have to wait on that. No more than a few more hours of work on the fabric part, aside from staining with blood and tea. There were plans to do some prosthetic wounds but time is...
Started on this today. Some good progress. I tried pepakura and expanding foam, to save time and materials, but I'm just not experienced enough with that media and just ended up wasting a bunch of time. Back to what I know... could've had it done by now :mozgus:
Eclipse Griffith helmet :carcus: working on it as we speak, actually. Taking a little break from it, but should have the basic shape ready in the next day or so. The last attempt didn't pan out so well, so trying a different technique.
I can only say that it's likely he had an imposing...
Thanks JMP! Can't tell you how much I've actually pondered Void's history while sculpting this. Has definitely been a study.
Anyway, the bust is finally done. If you see any major problems, speak now or forever hold your peace.
Thinking about knocking $100 off the final price point for anyone that wants to pre-order.
Bust will be offered in foam filled silicone painted in two different options:
Anime for $550 - Will still be detailed with the depth that silicone offers, but more of a bi-chromatic look more in tune...
