    Here is a little bit I sculpted this past April for my group of troopers. It's sculpted out of Super Sculpey, and then I made a mold so I could make castings. Castings are Smooth Cast 300, painted and then black washed. They have push-pin style fixtures on the back that are embedded in the resin.

    Looks better than the ones sold on ebay and at hastings.

    They look fantastic. I wish I could buy a hat and pin off you, but I will repect your signature.

    I love it! Things like these are subtle but truly bring any full outfit to a whole other league.

    Those are amazing! I wish I could order a couple from you. However, I completely understand the amount of requests you are getting. I'm going through that h-e-double-hockey sticks myself with a custom backpack I am making for my McQuarrie Boba Fett.

    These look great! The first few pics are nice, but it's not until the pins are mounted on a hat in the last photo that the effect is fully realized. Great job!

    When I wear a certain costume to events, I usually wear a hat in my "civvies" that speaks to the type of costume. My Biker scout is a white boonie cap with black Imperial cog, my RFT is an Army Patrol Cap with Revel symbol, and my Rebel Pilot is an orange A-Frame with Rebel wings... When I get my MkIV armor done, I am definitely going to want a Marine patrol cap (gray) with that symbol on it.

    Just so you know, posting on a post that is more than a year old is consider "necro-posting" it is frowned upon because it pushes an old or dead thread up the line where it can block out current ones.No biggie, just wanted to let you know. Meanwhile, I see that you are a new member! Welcome to the community! (y)
