    SUPERprops' Cad Bane Mask

    Well I got enough money to make the mold I soon as I sell some of my bust I'll buy some silicone.
    Heres what I did so far: I found out that if you mix bondo with polyester resin(add both hardeners)

    it makes a great gelcoat when it comes to making a mold for silicone mask, so I did that poured it on.
    Once it cured I mixed an epoxy resin thats about 12 hours to cure, added some fiber-glass mat(about 1:1 ratio of fiber-glass and resin) applied it,

    once I did that a few times I started on the other side and should do the second coat tomorrow.

    Good tutorial. But I have a question: why the fiberglass jacket doesn't stick to the outer side of the silicone mold?

    There is no silicone under, it's just my sculpt, bondo/polyester, and fiber-glass. As soon as it's cures I will take the negative apart, lay down some clay about 1/2cm. thick, then do the bondo/polyester/fiber-glass steps to make the core.
    After that I will drill some holes(so I can get the silicone in and the air out), inject the silicone, let cure, take the core out, put a modded mannequin head in it, and finaly inject a silicone foam into it.
    Hope this helps.

    How many coats are you going to put in? I think that 3 layers make a good relation strength-weigh.

    Is this the same method you have usually used for any other mask projects? Making the reverse mold for the core is an interesting concept i hadn't thought about. Would using the origional life cast bust be too close of tolerances to work around as a core?

    Actually I've never done this before but I read that it works good and makes the mask cheaper cost wise and lighter in weight. But since I do not have enough money to experiment I will just be slush casting them in latex.

    Hope that helps.
