Soz nope im gona start propaly this friday....... unless you want pics of firbreglass container's. EXITING!
The reason i startid it know is becouse i want ideas for my armor. kk see why i startid topic early.
Im using plain and simple card and hot glue gun, and resin for the strength and some other fibreglass that you can sand.
And using wet,n,dry sandpaper. Itrs good for deatails. and im only doin the helmet at the moment.
Yeh ive done all this before and i know not to use to much hot glue. And at the mo im makin another haleween costume for me or friend. Its the robot forklift from alian the movie. and thats on a fourm called what costume should i make? in genral discution.
So as i sead im not a noob at making armor ive done a boba fett costume witch il put some pics up on the other fourm i made.
And can you say any things that i need to be carefull of.
Sanding fiberglass is like sanding wood, you need to get hold of a sturdy part, then sand away, It took me about 2-3 hours sitting out there, I paitned my piece first to see imperfections and bumps in the resin, helped alot, otherwise without painting the helmet, it looks smoooooth already,.
Im using a realy touog and easy to sand fibreglass its got the fibreglass sheet sort of mixed up in the mixture. And the wet,dry sandpaper will make it very smooth indeed! when wet makes very smooth finish when dry its realy easy to sand with! perfect for me!
it will be like this........................................
I put resin on helm for trength..... then i put the fibreglass sheets on (litle outside) and then put on the sandibly fibreglass stuff.
good luck dude, and be sure to work quickly, i had bumps and horns from the resin becoming jelly because i was too worried with the forward visor piece and was too slow.
be quick, be steady and the pain will ease off in the end
