    Two possibilities concerning the mysterious "Burlap" and "Crackle" textures based on my extremely limited molding experiences:

    Possibly Ken reinforced his actual Plug with the burlap and it had nothing to do with the mold at all? He could have pressed the burlap too far into his skin coat of Ultracal and the imprint transferred to the surface?

    As for the crackle, I know that when plaster bandages can simulate this crackly look sometimes when they dry. Maybe these were used in some capacity and the texture transferred.

    Just some of my guesses.

    Shawn, there can be little argument that you have been a fan of the Preproduction #2 suit long before most of us even knew what the Preproduction #2 suit was! I remember taking photos of your PP2 costume years and years ago at Dragon Con, when TDH was still very young!

    Very interesting read. So let me be the first to ask (I am assuming your pm inbox is full) LOL, since theres a mold made, will there be castings made available?

    Hi Everyone,

    Came across a slightly better teaser pic I took and thought I'd share. Obviously, I've not been able to work out my photography kinks over the years. I'm sure Art will show this off for what it really is if anyone is still in doubt. But until then, here is a better representation.




    Thanks everyone for their kind remarks and support of this fantastic project so far !

    Chris

    Nicely done chris. Great read Art.

    And how lucky that the original, which couldnt be painted wouldnt inhibit the rebout 25 at all!

    C'mon. You know you were worried. Just a little.

    Beautiful piece and beautiful work, both to be admired.
