Still working

I wanted to post a picture of what the inside of the mold looks like while the resin is curing. I’m also posting a picture of a pre-aged paint job, using a darker blue and shinier yellow. I haven’t nailed down a crackle technique I really like yet. I have a self-imposed goal of the end of January to get this mask completed, because I’d like to move on to another costume project in February, so I might just finish this one off with the crackle glaze I have now, and save a casting for when I someday find the perfect technique.

The inside of the resin-coated mold

Happy with the colors, still not sure how to age it

    Okay, I’m understanding all of this but one thing. Initially you sculpted on a plaster mold of someone’s face, i presumed so the mask would be form fit. Then you made a mold of the actual mask, but not the plaster part… So, is the mask not form fit to her face? Then what was the point of sculpting it on a form fit plaster form of someone’s face? Just to make it easier? Or did you somehow make it so the mask was indeed form fit to the face?

    Just wondering, as I am looking to make this particular costume, and you have the best explanation how that I could find :p

    The plaster cast was mainly to sculpt on, not necessarily form-fit. I wouldn’t know how to really do that. Wow. I really need to update this thing if people are still finding it. I’ve sculpted and finished an entirely new mask at this point.

    that looks way awesome – did you do it generally the same way as this one (with a different crackle finish, obviously)?

    and yours is pretty much the only detailed how to on the internet – so I’m sure tons of people still look at this :p
