That WAS the BR helmet. That was the incomplete version.
He wants to know that to do after this stage. That is casting, that of which I know nothing about.

Make a mold of the model out of silicone, then cast it in resin.

Supplies and instructions can be found at smooth-on.com

That was my problem as well, I think I figured out a way to do that by casting the entire head with the helmet on it in silicone then remove the helmet from the head and place the head back into the mold that you just created

Pour plastic into the mold so it can form around the head in the empty space IE: "the helmet"

my thought was to wrap the head in something like plastic wrap or somethin so that it is more "round" when you place it back into the mold that way the nose and such dont get caught in the plastic when you release.

now this is just a thought...I havent personally verified if it would work or not in my head the theory is pretty sound but you never know...



Good Luck!
