The first mold was cast in resin so I could make some play versions.
Then when I melted the monster clay and molded it. This was so I can learn how to use the product as well as do many refinements. Clay is so easy to work with but it requires a lot of patience and forward thinking. It allowed me to do the corrections to helmet that otherwise be impossible. This helmet was my first pep project and it showed. There where distortions through out and the clay gives you a way to resculpt those areas. I'm happy for now. I'm sure this will get another afterwards. This is the old school method of remolding until you have a near perfect piece mixed up with new products and cheaper materials.
My glove mold only cost roughly $50 each time I make one.
I don't have much time to do my projects so its taking forever and I can afford to "not" be efficient when I can.
My main focus in prop making is the process and all the wonderful tools I get to play with. I love thinking outside of the box and trying new innovative ways.
