I'm looking to commission a set of latex/rubber pawpads for a set of 4-fingered handpaws, preferably in light blue (glowing would be awesome, I saw someone who did that before on here). I would do them myself but my last attempt came out less than ideal.
Also, where do you guys find good buckram or mesh? The stuff I've been using has small holes (I got it from joanns, its called unicorn buckram?) but I've noticed that a lot of suits have better quality mesh used for the eyes which can be colored with paintpens without it clogging the holes. The buckram I used had to be colored with marker, and after some wear, the color bled :/ I would be willing to buy a piece from someone if they could spare enough for a few sets of eyes, I don't really need to buy a huge amount online.
And one more question! I made a bodysuit pattern for myself using old clothes, but when I had sewn it together, it was a little tight. Should I make another 'mock' suit or would giving another inch or two of seam allowance work?
So I'm going to take a crack at a resin mask, and I was wondering about a few things...
1) Does a regular
marionette mannequin head replicate closely enough a realistic head profile, or should I somehow get a mould of my head to work off of?
2) What material do you use for the hinges on resin masks? Do you use e6000, shoe goo, or some other kind of glue to attach it to the resin mask and bottom jaw?
3) How thick do you usually cast your resin? Do you add any kind of filler like a layer of loose fiberglass, etc?
4) what material do you usually coat the inside of the finished mask with? (to cover the raw resin which rests against your face)
Thankyou in advance ^.^
