    That looks awsume what did you use to make it up with it looks like clay if so is it air dry , oil based or water based im interestde because i just got a heap of clay and am wondering what it is like to cast over.
    All of the sculpt was done in oil based clay, then molded with silicone rubber. The clay can can be re-used and re-used and it never drys out. So you dont have to worry about your sculpture drying out on you or shrinking/cracking.

    Special thanks to Jose for "wising me up" on the correct material to use on this. Got a chance, thanks to him, to pull one from the mold yesterday and had the chance to clean it up real quick and to a test paint job on it w/out any weathering today.









    Dont mind the bad paint job, I spent all of 20 mins on it.

    Got a chance to do some more sanding and weathering on the helmet today

    enjoy








    With the sanding of the inside the helmet, it fits me very loose on my head now and pops on and of with no problem or twisting to get it off/on
