Hey Thanks everybody who has been following my progression on ol' one eye here, I'll be finishing the final paint work on him tonight! It's all your guy's enthusiasm and encouragement that keeps me doing these projects..... Thanks again!

It's good ol' organic wool crepe hair, and I apply it the same way Ray did by just cutting tiny little clumps and sticking it on directly with caulk. Same technique, different mediums.... Ray, of course, using latex based materials.

Ok, the paint work is about 90% done and these will be the last of the pics I take with this crappy little camera, so next will be to finish off the last little finessing touches and then do the real photo shoot with real lighting and a decent camera!!!

Just tryin to match how it looked in the movie, those gray areas on the jowls and around the mouth were on the original puppet..... and I think they could've come from the oils off of Ray's fingers

That's looking awesome. Great paint job too. I'd forgotten about crepe hair. I remember those old Dick Smith makeup kits from the '70s that you'd get from Toys R Us (or other toy stores) having that in them!

Yeah, the Ymir armature was used for the smaller foot tall Cyclops that fought the dragon at the end of the movie, the armature for the original 16" puppet was built specifically for that puppet.
