very nice job. Did you make a mother mold to go around the silicone? Still a very very clean job. Also the clay is ALWAYS a pain to remove from the mold, at least for me. I had a tooth towards the end getting out the fine details.
Thank you :) I will make neck piece and hands soon and show you this process . Just finishing 3d printing hands today.

Idea with silicone cast is working -only problem is cost of wax in spray. I will try to use first neck silicone mold to make hard mold for latex neck . If this version will be not the best I have other idea. I will make plastic copy of the neck and then use casting plaster on plastic cast. Then just use hairdryer to make plastic soft and take it out.
Need bigger hole in the helmet to put head. I just made the biggest hole cutting out only neck but think I need also remove lower back piece and make some king opening system with magnets.

I cut the visor and back piece. It's still a bit tight to put your head in the helmet but slowly moves are helping to not scratch my ears

. I am making silicone mold for this back piece so I do not need to use big and heavy mold fors small piece like this. I will try lenses from my paintball mask and see how it looks like.
I have also 3d printed hands and will make silicone mold in next week. I am 3d printing everything in 0.2 layer bcs will take ages to print so many pieces. Atm I am 3d printing arm.

Second neck is done and look better then first piece . First few layers of liquid latex and then with elastic bandage. Top front of the neck is still wet and not good but I will cut it out -this part will be from cast resin.Now I am waiting for all materials for painting stage. I will try few methods of painting. Unfortunately in UK is very hard to buy Monster makers latex paint and need to go around this problem.

I am back after full day of finishing version 1 of the helmet. It was *.... day.
I am trying to match hard piece of the neck with latex. First problem was to cut in similar place to match the shape . After a few tries using marker and dremel it is almost same place of cutting. Next problem is gluing together this pieces. I used few types of glue and the problem is time of drying . The best result is with super glue but then it is very easy to break. Rest glues maybe are stronger but I can only use my fingers to hold this pieces in correct position . I glued small piece of latex neck behind the plastic piece to glue it both pieces and make them stronger. If you have any idea how to glue this pieces I will be happy to read it.

YEs i know MonsterMask but believe me man!!! when i say that with Crazy glue it is NOT enough ;) .... Yes it will stick very fast but it will not be strong enough when you will go to conventions .... so do as i say ....put your dreads with crazy glue THEN you put silicone calking ;)
