2nd Bio Sculpt

Here's my second attempt at sculpting a Bio Helmet. It's been over three years in the making, so the process for me hasn't been very quick haha!

First start out with the wire armature. This was based off of the measurements from my other bio helmets.

Then slap on strips of burlap dipped in plaster of paris in layers so that it becomes thick

The wire is what keeps it from collapsing, and once this hardens you'll have your armature

I also put layers on the inside just for the hell of it

I used Chavant medium and soft clay, cut them into pieces and melted them in a crock pot. I began slapping the gooey clay onto the armature

Then slowly start shaping your clay

The great thing about sculpting is that you can build up more by just slapping more clay on, or you can remove chunks just using tools. Clay is very forgiving, so if you make a mistake, you can always rebuilt it!

My design changed as I worked on it. You can see ribs in the lower jaw, but then I removed them

I wanted it to have a mechanical look, so I started adding some tank model parts, and bits from around the house.

You guys that sculpt from clay never cease to amaze me. If I was to sculpt this from clay, it would, well, not look cool like that anyway...
