A 3-part Matrix Shell Mold I did for @hexmortis in the spring for a really awesome Warhammer 40K helmet design they'll be selling.
Quick Run through of steps :
-Clay up positive 1" thick all way around and add keys (after wrapping original to keep clean).
-Make mold wall shims with registration keys where mold parts will separate.
-Make fiberglass outer shell over clay leave a pour spout open. Do the same for the other 2 parts.
-Open up and clean out clay for one silicone section, pre-drill small air escape holes all over, pour in silicone. Repeat for the other 2 sections.
-Clean out clay and model!
Ready for rotocasting!
Had fun demo-ing airbrush painting for a Death Claw Skull tonight on @makingitup_atl Twitch channel. They're finalists in the Twitch Costume contest in CA happening later this month so check out their awesome T-60 Power Armor and the show on www.twitch.com/makingitupatl
Axe Handle details- Cast Resin and Leather.
The handle was sculpted to have wood grain texture before molding and a painted faux finished to have the variegated multicolored patterns. Then I weathered the surface of the "wood" as well as the leather wrappings to appear worn, dirty, and well used like any proper viking weapon. 😁
