I've added my God Mask to our etsy page! https://www.etsy.com/listing/196740040/castlevania-god-mask
Got started on the young Doctor today before my Ipad died and I lost my reference. Will pick it back up tomorrow and try and get the other two done.
Quick pic of two EpoxAcast gems outside. It's about to storm here, so it's not the strongest lighting. Gem on left colored with four drops of red. Right has four red and two white. The mold was Oomoo 25 with mold release.
Overall, I really like the material and will continue to use it for gem/clear applications instead of the stuff from hobby stores.
I did need to purchase a food scale because it has to be measured by weight, not volume, a first for me. Also, it has a 24 hour cure period. Pot life is 5 hours.
The original gem was hand-sculpted and sanded before I molded it.
Been doing some color comps before I actually start painting.
I'm going about this one a bit differently than I have in the past. More research, more steps.
Look what my little brother did! I'm so proud of him.
He started off by sculpting it in oil clay. The mold was Ultracal. I'm guessing that he used RDT 407 Latex for the actual cast (that's what we've always used and he has no reason to change). He might be wearing this to a con soon.
I lied. Found a better picture to use for reference and that caused me to go back and resculpt several parts. Now to smooth and make sure everything is where it's supposed to be.
Finished sculpt for the Devil mask. The final product will be cold-cast. (I'm having too much fun with that process)
I based this dagger off of the concept art because I found it to be a bit more elegant than the in-game version. It's multiple layers of Styrene, with spot putty and apoxie sculpt. Kinda funny that you can see part of Mehrune's Dagger on the right. That's my next project to finish.
