    May 11, 2010, 11:02 AM - Another Cold cast Project #1

    I just finished the preliminary cold cast aluminum.
    It needs some fixing in a few "bubble" spots.

    Its my very first attempt at modeling, and casting so bear with the flaws.

    Ill post some of the pix as i go along.
    [edit] forgot to add what i did:
    Its cast in dragonskin boot mold.
    2gel layers aluminum dusted mold aluminum filled polyester resin.
    1 roto layer aluminum filled urethane smooth-cast roto.
    1 fiberglass cloth layer
    1 layer reinforcement polyester resin.

    Later i will dremel off the spikey bits on the inside and do 1 more layer of urethane roto and trim it up of course.
    Lining will probably be felt.
    Then on to the paint job.

    Nice work. I'm not a million miles off my first casting attempt. Looks great. Hopefully I can do an equally good job.

    I have cut off the skirting from the mold proccess and begun to address some "bubbles" around the base of it with bondo filler and such. I have also steel wooled it, and plan to start the masking of the silver parts tonight. Pics to follow.

    Began Masking for the layered weathering for custom paintjob. Weathering will be close to ESB style. I am using liquid latex for masking the details.

    Further work on the paintjob, i suppose this could be moved to the mandalorian section but what the hey, i DO also have a ESB paintup happening simul to this one, ill try to get some pics of it in its stages.

    Its still a WIP, and the lower cheeks plus back still havent been done as well as the earcap and RF.

    Then after all of that, ON to the finer details of the helm...
