Wolf Helm of Russ
« on: June 14, 2018, 02:20:08 AM »
The other day I decided to dust off this backburner project and get it finished.  It's nearing completion, so I figured I'd go ahead and share my progress so far.

I started with a reject cast from my old beaky space marine helmet mold.  I split it in half lengthwise to add a bit of width, ground off the ears and camera housing, and filled in all the holes.  This gave me a starting shape that looked like so:

Then I covered it with a bunch of expanding foam:

Then I whittled the foam down to the rough shape I needed:

That shape was covered with oil-based clay and the final shape started to become clear:

Sculpting was mostly done late at night when I was home from the shop, but it worked out pretty well:

So a little over a year ago, it looked like so:

Then, tired of moving the sculpt around in the workshop, I dusted it off, mounted it to some cardboard, and filled the overhangs with silicone:

Then I went ahead and mounted it upright and built up a drip wall:

And built up the rest of the silicone rubber mold jacket:

Once that had cured, I built a two-part fiberglass mothermold:

Then, after it was all solid, I pried the mothermold off, trimmed up the edges, made a relief cut up the backside of the rubber jacket, and demolded the sculpt:

After a tiny bit of clean-up, I was able to rotocast a good, solid copy of the helmet:

After a quick trim, I couldn't help but try it on and compare it to the sculpt:

Not bad:

But maybe the next one will be better:

Stay tuned...

That looks great and you can see the potential once it's fully made up - keep up the good work!
