    Yeah that picture isn't with backer Ross. That picture was a test with the other crap. I also already only us rd 407 from monster maker. I got the bat black latex this time but I will probably only get the regular from now on. I used the regular 407 on my first predator mask, feet, hands etc and it was great. I got the bat black latex for this to see, but it seems to be a little less sturdy and the dry time is longer. I plasti dipped my first set of dreads on my other predator and it worked fine, but I am trying the latex meow. Yeah I also plan to put at least 50. These rods are thicker so we will see when i end up putting them in. Also the samurai predator hhas no beads or quills from my reference pics. I also still have some silicone molds from my last beads if I need to cast more. I also ordered quills via wreav advice for the mask. I will have to try the silicone though. What is the dry time on it?

    Got some paint on the dreads. Still need dread beads. Added some more paint to the face. I think we are good and did some dark brown washing EVERYWHERE! Samurai head almost complete.

    lazybones88 NO! dont put yellow it is very good like that....the more colors you will put the less realistic it will look. If i can add some positive tips, would be to add more dreads on the crown (on the top). Besides that i REALLY love the gradient coloration of your teeth.....

    Good job! I've found molds and casts (be it for anything) is very hit and miss. Congrats on finally getting a good enough cast!
