    Nov 17, 2016, 12:52 PM - McQuarrie Concept Fett V2. #1

    This is my second run on the concept fett bucket. I did a try a little while back with bondo and custom paper designs but I wasn't able to get the perfect look that I was looking for. (You can check that build here: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f45/r...met-wip-51862/ )
    So I started it all over again but this time Im going to sculpt the whole thing. Pics coming soon so check back in a few days if you are intrested!

    Right now it's ruffly the size that i want but Im going to make it slightly bigger
    so it would fit most of the people well. Im going to buy some more clay on the weekend
    and start to build up the visor and nose area so stay tuned!

    Well I did not destroyed it I use it as a decoration Well I already like this technique more its faster easier and way more accurate. I want to finsih it before the holidays because I will go back to my country for 3-4 weeks and with this sculpting method I can proceed really fast.

    Okay I have done quite a few things in the past week and im almost done with the sculpting. Still needs smoothing here and there and the right side of the face area needs some corrections but its going to be finished soon.

    Soon I'm going to finish the sculpting (Don't have much time on my hand but I'm trying to be fast as possible) then I'll make the first cast, some patching up some sanding etc. then I'll move on to the final cast. Maybe 2 weeks from now.

    The little triangle. I cut out the triangle (about the right size) and i used it to carve out the clay then I used the same piece and embedded it in to the sculpture so I didnt had to mess around in that teeny-tiny hole with sculpting tools.

    Okay the back was tricky because of two things
    1. There is no actual reference of the back of this bucket so I just went with the other Mcquarrie concepts design.
    2. This if my first time trying to carve these little thin lines ( but I think it turned out good anyways )
