Amulet of Doom

Hello,

in order to stuff some of my different original costume from the movie, i decided to make some screen accurate replica of my original amulet used in the movie.
I made some of them before in resina but i was convinced that making them in metal would be really better and a good practise to recreate stuff with the same techniques they used 40 years ago

1- mold Making (mold max 60 silicon, really good stuff who can resist until 300°C, pewter melt at nearly 237 °C , silicon is combined with a vaccum chamber to avoid any air bubble)

2- pewter cast ( i melt pewter object i found as pichet , goblet ... ^^)

3- dremel cleaning / smooth of the edge etc

4- washing of metal to permit a good reaction of the treatment with a special chimical product to dark the pewter

5- metal silver paint brush for the patina surface

6- Lace & gloss

and voilà :) :p

Nice work dude, that come out really nice. Mold max 60 is good stuff, I have used it a lot.
Is the original movie one made from metal or is it resin?
I cast my stuff in bronze now, easier to get cleaner casts with the lost wax method.

Thanks, the original one is made of metal too for the amulet :)
(contrary to the original chest/shield emblem of the doom guard made with a kind of wax)
