Bit of info that might help... When "installing" the dome liner (foam dome), I have found that when you push it into place, the tension in the foam itself will generally be enough to keep it where it is. Once you have one in-hand, it'll make more sense.
Wanted to give a Giant plug for this product and White Shadow as he is the Pinnacle of Professional. White Shadow also is very accommodating with the color selection. I wanted a Gunmetal Grey, he stepped up to the challenge and delivered, Big Time!!!! One of the best transactions I have ever encountered.
Those liners look amazing!
Out of curiosity, what material are made of, so that they capture so much detail?
Urethane rubber + polyurethane foam?
None of the above? xD
I need to make similar pieces of padding for problematic areas of the helmet (hide some electronics that go on the cheeks and similar) and I love the idea of being able to do them in detail and not just a piece of EVA foam or similar ...
I use a product from Smooth-on called FlexFoamIt. It's a self-skinning 2 part urethane foam. Once measured out, you have 50 seconds to thoroughly mix the 2 parts, pour evenly into the mold (in my case, a silicon mold I've previously "painted" with pigmented powder), and finally apply and secure even back pressure. Taking too long with any step likely means the foam will have gaps, bubbles, or an inadequate skin.
Saying it takes time and many failures to get the process kind of right (no one gets it exactly right) would be a slight understatement.
That being said, there's a lot of really cool stuff you can make once you get the hang of it.
And thank you. You can manage a good bit of detail, it just has to be the right kind of detail, otherwise air can't escape and you wind up with bubbles or voids Hit me up if you decide to go forward with it...I'd be more than happy to help.
