Don't look bad if you don't look cloesly.

The one on the right took ages to set up and when it was pulled from the mold

Big tear in the heel and a very thin bit in the to that split. Bugger. But as you can see in the pic at the very top and this one

I managed to repair it so it looks almost as good as new.

The came the pullling of the other foot.

Bugger again, only a few bubbles this time and no splits or tears. And the seams clened up well on both. Over all apart for the extra work to fix them up They look quite nifty, considering I've made them from scratch I'm quite happy. I think the main reason for the airbubbles is not soaking the upper two sections of the mold enough. Better luck next time

Easy yep it was, painstaking and time consuming too to get a result that is nice and flush with the rest of the feet. I've sculpted in a couple of deliberate mistakes on these puppies too, just in case when filming is done and dusted we sell them one to help finacne another production. So we'll know if some beggar has a go at recasting them. They've got a nice white latex paint base coat and I'll be matching these with the paint job on the rest of the suit.

New Gauntlets and Helm to sculpt mold and cast and painting the dreads and my custom chest armour. Sounds a lot but it shouldn't take long. I have a bit of a breather before we can resume filming and the pred is needed.
