So I was looking around at some batman masks online. I quickly realized how expensive they were. So I decided to make my own cowl. It is a neck less cowl, that draws inspiration from the dark knight cowl and the dawn of justice cowl. This is my first time ever sculpting anything, and I wanted do ask you guys, how am I doing? I think it looks okay up close. Now about the lumps on the sculpt, what would be a way good way to get rid of the lumps and make the surface of the mask smoother as a whole?


Here are the pictures of the cowl so far, sorry for the pics being sideways, don't know how to make them the proper orientation.

Great start, I always like seeing new bat designs. What kind of clay are you using?

I'm not sure if you've researched them yet, but by the time you buy silicone and your materials to cast the cowl, you will likely have spent what it would cost to buy one from someone else.

True, but you gain skill! Plus when it comes to spending money, it's easier for me to let go in small quantities rather than one lump sum. ;)

It's a great start! I need to try my hand at sculpting too.

I'm using primas pastillina. I honestly don't know what materials to cast the cowl with. Latex seems to be the easiest material to cast with, but it doesn't really look too good. I assume silicone would get the job done. Do you know if smooth on's body double silicon would work? It's for life casting and can be applied directly onto the surface
