hi, does anyone know where i can find pvc in colors: yellow and orange, mendels has it but for 20 of what i need, does anyone know of a different place?
Steed here. Who, me? Just this yaller (Palomino) biker horse working on his first helmet, er, head. :)
Using five pieces of Styrofoam brand... well, styrofoam. Plan on stacking them after what I am doing now, hollowing out the lower four pieces for my knoggin'. Will also hollow out the long horse nose as much as possible after figuring out the eye holes and then cementing the pieces in a stack to finish off the exterior shapes and features. You know, the usual long face but smiling.
Not sure on eyes yet, but bought a sheet of white, plastic screenlike stuff. Flexible and I can see through fine, but will look strange up close. I think. Maybe. Was cheap so if I find something better, will use that.
Of course this cutting and sanding is out in the garage since the foam powder gets everywhere (including my hair as I try it on for fit) and clothing but such is life.
Something inbetween realistic and cartoony will result. Trying to keep it as lightweight as possible and will have to line the inside kinda like a helmet so it fits fairly snug but not uncomfortable to turn, lean, etc. (head motions) or, worse, fall off. Suggestions as to lining material?
Anyway, once I get this close to shape and fit, will take and post a few photos.
