    You've got your hands full it seems already lol But I do like what I've seen so far of your work, that's for sure. We can talk some more about this. I'm surely interested. Maybe commission some armor for next year's Con..

    OK well I had a deception tonight because of my impatience .....85 % of the seam of my mask did not cured and I removed the mask from the mold too quickly....I also did not put mold release agents. Another problem was that I lacked of Latex.... so I puted some tape temporarily until I repair it with Contact glue..... or super glue. I also need to fill the mask with memory foam once i get it repaired.... I am NOT a mask specialist as you can see....

    I think it's looking pretty good. I couldn't even do what you've done.

    Greetings Vebo1 I used 2 process...but the simplest process for making gloves is puting mask RD-407 Latex directly to your hands ( you make one hand at a time).....you take your time to put 3 to 4 layers of latex because RD-407 is NOT liquid, it is ''Semi'' liquid .... Or i am doing another technique is to put plaster of paris to make a mold of your hands then you sculpt directly on those molds ...... after that I will use Rebound 40 Smooth-On Silicone to brush on the hands BUT make sure you make a separation on your hands first before puting the silicone :D then I use Shell Shock fast to make the shells... of course on top of the silicone hands....Shell Shock is also a brushable resin....

    Thanks good to know . I used Alginate and ultracal 30 then I will sculpt the glove mold with oil based clay then cast the glove in oomoo 25 doing a two piece mold . Then build a shell then slush cast with 407. I want to get all the details. Thanks bud

    Greetings Yautja brothers.... :) the teeth are made and puted to my mask.... well it just need the 2 bottom teeth and continuity of the mandibles and that'S it .... after that some touch ups and putting the DREADS that i bought from Termokk and facial hair .... crazy glue will do the job..... only problem with my mask the Nose ....I wish i could have made the sculpt dimensions more wider ...... :( WIN_20180410_01_15_34_Pro.jpg WIN_20180410_01_15_40_Pro.jpg

    WHoooooooooooooooa! Long time since i updated this page ;) Well I received my dreads from Tarmokk today and attached it to my Jir'Xar bio mask.... which is a good result .... well it is satisfying for me :D ... here is the pictures (y) I THINK I MIGHT NEED 20 or 30 more dreads for the bottom middle of the back of my mask, WIN_20180509_15_16_14_Pro.jpg WIN_20180509_15_16_31_Pro.jpg WIN_20180509_15_16_48_Pro.jpg MORE...

    Greetings LunaticNic :D I will say like i said to Xilian
    ( QUOTE from myself) I am sure you would asked me ''WHY do you buy this mask when you have done one?'' ahahah because of the colors scheme that goes perfectly with my armor and spear, and because I will have a 1:1 replica for sculpting a predator head again ;)
