Howdy TDH! It's been a long while. On a bit of whim I decided that instead of a 4th custom mando I would instead try my hand at a newer, but still quite impressive female build for Celebration 6. I'll cut the chatter though and move onward.
CHEST ARMOR SCULPT:
The starting chest "buck":
Roughing out the general shape:
Smoothing it out!:
General touch ups will be done before casting:
For time's sake (or the fact I tend to be impatient) I rigged a very quick duct tape mold of my forearm. I AM CRAZY. ALSO IMPATIENT. That's my final disclaimer on that note.:
Prepped the quicky mold, and poured in the quick set plaster... easy!
The result is lumpy, but will work perfectly:
Building the top of the gauntlet:
Tada! I do some clean up tomorrow before these puppies are also cast into plaster.
The chest buck is ready for a test pull off the vacuum form machine tomorrow, gauntlets will start their journey to plaster-hood, and the rest of the armor should be a cinch (sintra and styrene). The helmet will probably be the last armor aspect to be tackled.
