Like I said in reply to your other post.. (I'll repeat it here because your other post is kinda off-topic, and might get deleted since you started a new thread for it).

Shape one out of clay and then essentially melt plastic over it.. cut it out, and put it all together. It would take an entire website to describe the specifics of the process.

Here's a great site for instructions on how to build a stormtrooper. You can do Halo armour, or ANY hard plastic armor the same way.

you don't want playdoh that dries and cracks when you're done. get some oil based clay.


get a foam head from a craft store, and start slapping some clay onto that.

Buy a Spartan action figure. The accuracy of certian areas of the armor seems a tad questionable, but it will give you a good 3d starting point.

I'm going to use a dummies head and sculpt around it, so I can get a look at what it would look like on someone's head. Then make different sections, and then vacuumform them.

vaccumforming is probably the hardest way to do a helmet. you would have to do 3 pieces, and it's a paint. you can brush on liquid latex though. might be a good idea.

What about making a fiber glass version of the helmet? Instead of vacuumforming it, other parts of the armor I can vacuumform, but as you said Adam, the helmet would be the hardest to vacuumform. Or what other alternatives would any one prefer?
