Feline Mask Blank I by Feyreisa Feline Mask Blank I by Feyreisa
So here's a piccy (finally) of the feline mask I've been working on. I need to do a couple more adjustments on the lower jaw, pop in the eyes and teeth, install hinges, etc. And hoo boy, furring is gonna be daunting. I scribbled a tribal design onto its forehead which I will later apply onto the fur. I'm rather happy with that design, actually; it turned out much better than expected. ...Looks like a funky evil eye...XD

It's cast in polyurethane resin. It's super strong! I've dropped it, stepped on it, piled stuff on it, and there's no warping or denting yet. As far as durability goes, it has passed the test! I think it's scared of me now, though. XD

ahh! Thats awesome!- so you casted it in resin, but what did you sculpt the original in?

Oh! I sculpted it in wax-based plasteline clay. I love it! It's so smooth and easy to work with. :D

Do you mind me asking what type of polyurethane resin your using and the process? I have a mask I made out of plasticine clay, I love it so much, but am not sure what to do with it now!? I tried a plaster weave overlay and hated the result, and damn near ruined my mask in the process. Any tips you can provide? Yours came out so great!

I'm using Smooth Cast 300, but I'm buying the 325 soon, as it's harder and better for masks, IMO.
For the process, I used Qarrezel's AWESOME tutorial: [link]
As for tips: when you're doing the detail mold with the liquid rubber, don't neglect to add the thickener. It will make life SO much easier. -_-; Also, when making keys for the mold, don't make ones that are too large, or the mother mold will tear them off when you go to remove it from the sculpt.
And thanks for the compliment! I still have a lot of room for improvement, and positive encouragement goes a long way. :D
Sorry if I didn't explain very clearly, but if you have any more questions, feel free to ask! Good luck on your mask!

It looks like a third eye! Will you be able to make mine in time for Youmacon? We can always stay up all the night the day before to finish if needed. I'll try not to screw anything up xD

Now that I finally got my ass moving, I'm starting to make progress on these masks. I have to do the sculpt for the wolf mask, mold & cast it, and then I'll get started on your fox one. Or did you change your mind about which animal you would like to wear?
I am panicking and praying like crazy that it will not come to that...although I think we're prolly doomed, considering we happen to be quite skilled in the art of procrastination. XD If so, you get to help with putting the fur on these beasties. X3

I'll wear either a fox or a panther. Which ever is easier. I love em both. btw I'm creating a manga series about shape shifters. I wont tell you too much about it right here cause anyone could read it BUT you're (sort of) in it! Choose your shift and let me know. Don't worry there wont be a Drake in this x]
You know it will end up that way. We'll be sitting on the hotel floor trying not to get hot glue on the carpet and/or burn ourselves. Or burn each other...intentionally. Ok I could see that ending VERY badly. Work faster so we don't end up in the emergency room covered in glue!

I was planning on making a panther mold...hmmm...
Can we choose mythical creatures?!?!?! :la:
Considering it's industrial-strength hot glue, I could see it ending up very badly. XD

Panther works then.
That depends. What kind of creature?
I think we need to put 911 on speed dial...

Kewlio. I'll start plastering clay on Damian. :D
Arggghhh, nvm. It would clash with the story I have going right now. ...I don't know! I can't decide! D:
Or hire our own EMT so they'll always be on standby. XD

Damian? I'm guessing that's what you named the mask...?
Lion? Tiger? Bear? Armadillo? Raccoon? Skunk? Weasel? Snake? Apple?
That's a good idea! I wonder how much it would cost...maybe we can just kidnap one.

It's the name of one of the head form I base the mask sculpt off of. The other one's named Zack. XD
I WANNA BE AN APPLE. D:<
Hmmm...I'm starting to wonder what it'd be like to legitimately pay for peoples' services? Nah, kidnapping them is WAY more fun. :D
