Shipment of Cromatex finally came in, basically sintra, cost less. started off with the helmet, hardest part IMO. using the WOF templates and scaling them to my GIANT HEAD.
firstly I used the base helmet template to cut out the largest of the parts, the entire helmet frame, leaving in the the visor and cheeks to allow for better bending
heating the piece into the general shape and securing it together with a strip of industrial tape, non permanent stick of course
using a form to shape the crown of the helmet
and another one to shape the bottom
the helmet is quite springy at this point, now ill heat it up until it takes the shape, as its force to keep the shape due to the forms, much like how they make cowboy hats
