Iron Man Helmet Part 1

My friend Shawn Thorsson recently gave me a casting from an Iron Man helmet mold he’d gotten.

The back section was split, but hey – it was free!  ( as in beer)

 

The section that had split was REALLY thin and delicate.  So the first thing I had to do was carefully tack the section together with a little superglue and baking soda (to help fill in the gaps) and then lay up some fiberglass to help keep it together and strengthen the area.

Ok, no laughing.  Its the first time I’ve ever used fiberglass…..  While that cured, I turned my attention to the main piece and decided to start cleaning up the flash and the edges.

I know I’m going to add lights to the eyes, so I’ll have to cut them out as well and sand down some mold seams.

  

Well, that’s probably enough for today.  Tune in next time when I do… Something else  🙂
