So decided to take another step in my costume making. I'm gonna give a go at sculpting and pulling my own masks. I picked up this set from monstermakers.com, which has pretty much everything you would need to sculpt, cast and pull your own mask. My end goal is to be able to pull my own Batman Cowl...but that will be a different post for now we are starting small.
Decided on a Hal Jordan Green Lantern mask as it looks fairly simplistic. Below is the first nights works, spent most of my time just playing with the clay figuring out how to work with it but came up with the below sculpt:
After I got this done and was fairly happy with it, I got overambitious and began covering the entire armature; "be damned all the advice saying start small, I was going full Batman cowl!" Needless to say EPIC Disaster! So now back small again with the Hal Jordan mask. Here's is where I'm at as of now:
Plan is to after work get some rubbing alcohol and see how smooth I can get this. Not going for perfect as I am kind of assuming, I will trainwreck this either during the casting stage or the latex pouring or the pull stage. Anyways any advice, critiques, or comments are always welcome!
