Loki Helmet Mold and Assembly- Swipe over to see how the horns lock in to the helmet and can be disassembled for transport, also a video of how tough the fiberglass Epoxacoat system I used is, and baby horns in their infancy just out of the mold! 😀

Custom sizeable Loki Ragnarok helmet mold. Since I needed this mold to be size adjustable for different size heads and was using Epoxacast fiberglass system decided to cast this in 2 seperate molds and join the back cast in the second mold to the front cast. 
To make sure I got the back in the right slot I actually went over my desired seam line by 2

Since I needed this mold to be size adjustable for different size heads and was using Epoxacast fiberglass system decided to cast this in 2 seperate molds and join the back cast in the second mold to the front cast. To make sure I got the back in the right slot I actually went over my desired seam line by 2" with the front mold so it would sit properly in the position it needed to be. Doing these as open face molds let me get access to all the spaces needed to reach to get the fiberglass in. #loki #propmaker #propreplica #ragnarok #thor #thorragnarok #lokihelmet #godofmischief #prophelmet #props #prop #cosplay #costumer #costumearmor #cosplayprop #cosplayhelmet #lokiragnarok #fiberglass #fiberglassprop #rpf #jmprops #jemeffects #makersgonnamake #moldmaker #molding #resinmolds #fiberglassmold

Forgive my poor video taking skills.
This is one of the Loki Ragnarok helmet horns, I did a special fiberglass casting method and it's incredibly strong and durable! 😀
Check out my other pics to see how the horns fit snuggly into the helmet, but can still be removed for transportation. Super pleased with the results of this one!

Wet forming leather for Thor's Ragnarok tunic, randomly one of my favorite things to do in leather. 😁 Here I've cut pieces of foam to shape the structure on top of, after drying I glued them into their hollows and sewed a shirt as a lining to protect both the foam and the persons skin. 
TIP: When wet firming make sure you wait till all the airbubbles are out of the leather before removing from the water.
MORE: Use a smooth wooden tool to get a nice even and consistent pressure to stretch the leather to form. (I prefer ceramic tools since they're wider)

Some little pieces ready to mold for Wonder Woman's Baldric sword & shield harness.
Acrylic is a great medium to mold on, it won't inhibit ur material, most glue, clay, etc won't stick permanently to it so it can be reused, and using it as a mold board allows you to pick up and move the pieces without ruining your seals! Hurrah! 😀

Lady Vader Chest plates and shoulder pieces I did for @ElizabethBuckner for DragonCon this year.
The shoulder pieces attach independently so she can move her arms and the back and front sections attach with magnets. (I spent some time trying to hide the connection point, swipe left to see a better image of it, after field testing I have some small changes to make for durability.)

Thor Armor and Cape for Rob Harper-
Real leather armor and ENORMOUS red .. cape! 😜
I don't take many sewn commissions anymore cuz I like to focus on armor, but this involved a good bit of wet leather molding, has foam forms underneath to accentuate the musculature, and I've always enjoyed leather work. The cape is almost 6 yards of fabric cuz this is for a big guy! It's heavy enough I actually put the cape onto leather pauldrons that snap on to the front and back of the shoulders so the weight is more evenly distributed. They will also support the giant demon skull from Ragnarok.

Lady Vader gettin shiny!!!! TIP: Lay down a smooth gloss black coat before painting metallics and it will give a better shine. 😉 (Be sure you either give it the full cure time to degass before recoating or at least within recoat time if it's the same type of paint.)

Hand sculpting the master model for my WW Tiara. (Yep I still handsculpt a lot of my props!)
TIP: Working on Baseboards allows you to turn your model and pick it up to move it to a safe location so you can work on other things at the same time. Clear acrylic is great cuz you can see grid marks or build sketches thru it allowing you to be sure you are getting all your lines and angles correct.

Joining newly done sections of the Link Master Sword, a master model I've been reworking to mold again. 
Changes I made are adding a more detailed version of the pommel triangle and blade connection, reworking the hilt wrappings and hilt end, and thinning the blade to about half thickness of original model I'd sculpted.

New design for my Han Solo in Carbonite Panels, changed up a few of the panel details to more accurately match film and added the blinking green light.
What dyall think? The blinking light wasn't in the film, but I was thinking it added some visual interest.. Yes? No?

Working on a Thor Ragnarok armor tunic.. We took a body form of the cosplayer and made my templates on the form, Will be doing a slight amount of leather wet molding over the pecs on my male mannequin and adding thin foam insets to get depth in the stomach area to match the on screen version.

Just got this guy in and it's sooooo neat I had to share!!! (The Crystal matrix on here is just incredible)
 I love props, but recently I started developing some small hand sculpted items, Ive been missing sculpting and 2 years ago decided to work on this as a side project in my spare time... Now I'm finally getting to the point I'm ready to share so watch out for some fun Crystals, Mushrooms and small chibi Mandrake and Pokemon sculpts as I finalize design ideas for them and start the sculpts! 😁
I'm excited to share this passion project with y'all and really hope you enjoy them!

WIP: Commission for a 'hard' pompadour wig from the Devil's Carnival, have it mostly fleshed out here in Monster Clay and building out the waves of hair.
TIP: When working oil based clay you can smooth the surface with solvents. 99% IPA alcohol is a weaker solvent, mineral spirits, and Naptha are stronger ones that actually begin breaking down the structure of the clay while smoothing the surface so you have to be sparing. (When working with solvents always use protection for lungs and skin).

Cold Cast Brass version of my Wonder Woman set..
Tip: Using a black base resin (such as @smoothon Onyx) gives an extra depth and shine when cold casting. I also use a black polish rubbed onto the surface to bring out the best in the metal.

Sculpt Repair I got to do on this really adorable catreature!
It was ceramic, a material which is always tricky both because during firing the clay is fused into a single piece in the kiln and the 4esultant conglomerate doesnt like glue very much and also since the true beauty of ceramic glazes are incredibly difficult to mimic with paints as that texture and the colors produced aren't flat but suspended in the glass part of the glaze. Luckily this was a matte and much easier to fill the missing bits and flaked off chips with putty then the slow process of color matching, I ended up mixing custom colors with pearls and metallics added in to get the correct final colors.
Really Happy with the final result and kitty is back in his home all better. 😁

Pretty stoked about my new spray booth!!
Huge thanks to my buddy Ryan for coming out yesterday and helping me move around the studio and build this bad boy!
I'll now be able to fit swords and longer items in here both legthwise and vertically. Still gotta pick up the duct and some small things to finish and add lights, but it's getting there! 😀

TIP: When making a mold of an item that has thin or small parts adding Vent channels to allow the air to escape makes a huge difference in final castings. Here I've added them to the noses of each wolf snout.
MORE: You can use anything to make your channels from wax to string, but I really like using electrical wire because I can bend it to place and it will stay.
