First time really posting on here. I'm currently working on 2 projects. An Ironman Helmet and a Batsuit. Ironman is on hold for right now due to my miss measure and I haven't gotten around to resize the pep file and start again. Anyway, for the Batsuit, I'm starting with the cowl. I've been trying to find the best way to make it. I've seen various levels of quality of cowls online and am hoping to get mine at least decent. The best ones seems to have been sculpted from clay to start with. I'm new to this and my sculpting abilities are slim to none. Here is my workflow to start out with. Was hoping someone can see if there's any weak links or have better ideas. first I take the pep model for the AC Cowl thats floating around and scale it correctly. Print it, glue it, etc. Once it is done, add resin to harden it. Once hardened, then I take clay and use that to smooth it out and add detail as needed. Using the pep file first eliminates a lot of the sculpting I'm not good at and I can start with a good shape. Also eliminates excess clay (On a bit of a budget). Once I'm happy with the clay part, use plaster to make a mold. Once I have the mold cast it using latex or equivalent to get the cowl. The part Ii'm the least confident on is picking what material to make it from. Not sure if I should use latex, rubber, etc. I have no idea. I've seen some that slushed latex but they came out a little thin. I want mine to have a little thickness to it. I also don't have access to industrial ovens, etc.
