I invented heels. Great
I threaded the foam to the wood "sole" to also have a physical connection with the hot glue. I'll fill the void with soft can foam
Spring added to toes. After they broke the first time i decided to make them more durable / flexible
Wrex head with coat of epoxy to promote clay adhesion to "dry" cardboard. In theory. The clay is plastilina melted down with some wax added to stiffen it up
I've been smoothing it with felt and rubbing alcohol and a lil goo gone. Still bumpy in the wrong way. But getting there
Ok so some of my images have magically disappeared . Damn. Oh well. Here is a shoulder part with green styrene foam edges i can sand to a nice edge
Shoulder strap attachment doodads. I'm going to make a rubber mold so i can produce the 12 i need. 3 different sizes
Here's a strap clip ? Detail in sculpey. I'll cook it then sand it down . I need 10 or so of these small guys. Also the brass bolt head will be added later. I need a bunch of those all over
One relatively good rubber mold. If filled with water, big enough for a baby to paddle a watermelon around and not touch the sides. Despite 5 coats of rubber there are stil 4-6 tiny holes and several thin spots. F#ck me.
I had to destroy him from the inside out due to the mother mold being a lil b*tch. All that's left is this horn...
Some issues with the mold. If you are going to use rondo as a mother mold material, use the heck outta the release agent. I barely got this out. Huge bubbles on one side. I can fix it but that was avoidable. I'm doing the latex now. Taking my time so the first detail coat dries properly.
Shoulder straps . Ornamental only. To wrap the eva around the ends, i had to hot glue a plastic half circle so the paper wouldnt buckle
Clown armor. I featherd down the edges to the grey eva wieh layers of thin stuff. I used rope as edges for a nice uniform radius
Clay detail area for forearm parts. I made a stamp. I'll use a similar technique fot the under suit if time permits
Latexing gauze strips in place to wrap around the frame and form a gauze/latex tube to keep the head on the frame
Latex neck/ face urethane resin forehead reinforced with foam . Really light, just a few icanlivewith casting errors
