Lord Scrummage Mold

Here's the mold, it looks beautiful.

silicone mold gi 100. It's a really good mold silicone. When you mix it, you have to de air it by putting it in a vacuum chamber. Luckily my internship has one that they let me use.

There are ways to get around it that I haven't done but heard. Mainly painting on a detail layer. I've done that before with other silicone and it works well, I just haven't done it with this.

Mold and cast of my hand

So, I've been working on this for a really long time. It's a silicone cast of my hand with an armature in it so I can animate it stop motion like.

Here's the mold as well.

Mold ready to pour for Scrummage Sculpture

Have my sculpture ready to pour the mold. I gotta figure something out for the hands. In the neck of the body is a square brass tubing stock. In the neck of the head is also a square brass tubing that is one size smaller. It fits perfectly into the body. This way I don't need to make the whole body a two part mold. I've explained how to clay up a two part mold before in a previous post.

Also interesting is that on many of my previous posts I've gotten a lot of responses posted in chinese. I assumed that these were some weird kind of spam. Thanks to my friend Ying, I gotten some of them translated. Turns out they just inspirational quotes. Weird... Thank you people who are posting your kind words.
