This is nothing major, but Ive had this idea for along time now. Plus, its just a simple thing to mold, and this will be my first molding experience ever.
What I will be molding is the "dent" portion from my ugly duckling recasted Mystery helmet. I had just cut it out because I recieved a much more accurate one from FP, and I couldnt just throw it out!
So here is the begining phases of my process.
I first began with cuting the dent out, and sanding it to a relativly roundish shape
I want to make this into a short cylindrical shape, so I took a disposable cup, cut off the bottom portion, and filled it with bondo (I added the right amount of hardner! ) and embeded the dent.
(NOTE: I do NOT want to be accused of recasting FP's dent that he had sent me-For that, I placed the casting that FP sent me, right next to the embeded dent in the picture, on the right side of it)
Right now, Im waiting for the bondo to harden up (its really warm right now). Once thats done, I'll remove the outer paper cup material, and sand it all down. I should be able to start the actual molding process tonight if it all works out!
