    Krayt Dragon Helmet Underway!

    Well, I've been working on the Krayt Dragon helmet from Saz for the last couple days. I started off by adding my greeblies, custom keyslots, custom ear caps etc. Then I made my cut outs and backfilled with Bondo and Glazing Putty. Today I finished the sanding, masked off the Krayt Dragon and have started painting. So,here it is so far...
    Raw helmet:

    Primed:




    Silvered:

    Bronzed:

    I'llput onemore bronze coat on today. Tomorrow I'llwetsand the bronze and mask off the key slotsand earcaps. Then I'll paint layer after layer, wetsanding between each. Once all the under coats are on, I'll get the top colors on, do the detail work etc. I'll keep posting daily progress.

    Very nice A'den! I like the extra cutouts you added. And what did you use on the earpieces to give them that awesome detail??

    I wanted it to look like jeweled, weathered Ivory...like the sword handles from Highlander.

    Anyway, finished it today! Here it is!

    Nice bucket their vod. I really like what you put in for the sides instead of a range finder. I am actually considering something like that instead of a range finder. GREAT JOB again!
