Chestburster Shifter knob

I finally got around to finishing up My chest buster shifter knob recently. Im very happy with the way it turned out. Although it sadly happened in conjunction with the loss of both Bill Paxton and John Hurt. :(
Material is sculpey/ super sculpey firm I originally made both arms and chicken wings but the arms (thanks to crap paint) didnt survive the molding process.. I will most likely resculpt them at some point.

**Disclaimer*** Rustoleum spray paint has changed its formula, and will now cause platinum cure silicones to "remain wet" in about a 1-2mm area surrounding it. I ended up with what appeared to be a cured mold only to find a gooey mess surrounding ruined sculpts. Ive used it with success in the past, and at first thought it was something else causing problems. But after a bit of testing Im certain its the paint. If you plan on using silicone. I dont recommend using it as a sealer.

Very neat and I'm not surprised about Rustoleum, I gave up on them decades ago when I used to paint model kits with their stuff and had nothing but trouble.

Wow that is amazing. I need to finish my sculpt. Don't think mine will be that good.

Thanks :thumbsup Can you guys see the attached thumbnails too? For some reason they are sideways on my end. Not sure how or why that happened.

That looks great! If someone tries to steal your car, they'd see that and think "What the hell is that??? I'm not touching it!!"

The thumbnails do show up sideways, but once you click on them they straighten up. That seems to happen here a lot. Not sure why.
