    finishing up the gauntlets...

    After MONTHS of avoiding it - I figured I better get busy and finish these things up... i finished the fiberglass base gauntlets back in August for Yvonne - but didn't get the cuff or trim done in time...

    i took the day off from work today and sculpted a cuff:



    it looks like it was sculpted w/ marshmellow in these pix - but only because I used some scrap clay i had laying around that was a mix of white and cream colored clay. As always - it looks better in person

    I'm gonna mold this then make a plaster copy... then cut it in half and make them into workable molds for my vac table... after I get a vac'd copy - i'll line it w/ leather then sculpt the black insert and vac that.

    I'm also working on the trim piece that goes on the other gauntlet. In case you didnt know - the trim on her right gauntlet is a totally seperate piece than her gauntlet. Argh... they (LFL) dont make these things easy

    What about the other ones that you had that were a different color? The ones I saw at your house?

    i didn't like the way that one turned out and i have new pix this time around and this one will work better w/ my vac table.

    Why is the theme song from "Ghostbusters" running through my head now?

    Cool though... looking forward to seeing the finished product! As usual, I'm sure they are perfect!

    That cuff, as well as your gauntlets are looking good.

    I don't suppose you'll offer any un-finished, huh? Just thought I'd ask, to try to avoid having to make them myself. My April deadline is getting here faster than I want.

    Oh, and it will still go glove, marshmallow cream cuff, and then gaunt.. I see? And, are you widening the base to match the gaunt diameter? I think the first cuff was a tad tight, right?

    Any progress on this project?

    (or the blaster? )
