    Hey guys, It seems really hard to find a good prop of the loki mask recently.
    I'm looking for a prop replica of the loki mask from 1994, it doesn't even has to be colored, I just need the cast to be accurate.
    there seems to be none of this on ebay.
    if anyone could help me, It'll be awesome!

    Some of the ebay ones look fairly accurate, I'm sure with a bit of work and some repainting they would be even better?

    The ones on ebay are cast off of someone's sculpt, and not from the movie prop, they are inaccurate, and their back side has very bad detailing.

    Alot of the eBay ones are recasts of the old Icons replica.

    Did you ever find a good replica mask? What was the original one made from?

    I found a guy online who casts them from an original prop that he made a mold of, he makes a kit and a finished painted one. He offers two separate paint schemes I am not sure which one is screen accurate if you think these are accurate please let me know. Search goldenarmor and it should pop up. I don't know how good the quality is but I am thinking of getting one if it can pass for a screen accurate one. mask1.JPG mask2.JPG

    Stay away! Golden Armor is a known recaster and was kicked off this site for recasting other people's work. Don't support his shady habits, please!

    Thanks for the heads up, this was the first thing I found on the search engine and it looked promising but I am glad you replied before i or someone else bought something from him. Do we know who he stole the cast from so we can buy directly from them?

    Thanks

    I am afraid I don't know that answer. It could be from anyone. Search their website name here on this site and read the threads about them, the guy who runs it will pretty much recast anything he can get his hands on, so the source of the mask can literally be from anywhere or anyone.

    *, and I finally thought we found a screen accurate one! will never buy from a recaster.
    these are really hard to come by, the only one on ebay, is also goldenarmor.

    if anybody here has one he is willing to sell or something like that, let me know please :)

    I aquired one years ago seems pretty decent still unpainted though, the bummer is I can't remember where I got it, if I remember I'll let you know. Good luck with your search :)

    I would also be interested in a cast of the original mask, I would to make a replica from genuine wood, but I would reproduce exactly the veins, and their position and the patina, and I want to add a genuine iron nose cover.
    Already found some pictures and a good screenshot, but it would be easier if I have a cast of original mask than from photos.
    I would make a collection of "ethnic looking" carved from genuine wood or natural material, but only prop replicas.
    -arumbaya fetish from tintin
    -loki mask
    -golden fertility idol from indiana jones
    Already have some potter wands.
    and other, maybe tribal looking weapons or other antique looking props, would be very funny!

    A Tusken raiders Gaffi stick would fit in.

    I decided to try and sculpt an accurate one myself.
    I have been looking all around the web. and boy! I came across some of most awful customer service ever (Etsy), one of them ( a member here I believe) even called me a troll for not agreeing with his price.
    That kinda sucks as I try to give the best customer service when talking with people.
    anyway, that's my experience with trying to find this.

    I made one from wood (i used butternut) and it took me around 3 days. Btw this is my first time carving wood, and working with metal but i think it turned out good. In person is even better. Let me know what u guys think :)

    Your first wood carving AND only 3 days?! Well done!!! What did you use to create the striations in the wood?

    64D68FE7-81F4-4E0D-ACC2-E8D1C9673FA7.jpeg I thought its going to take more, but i did some
    research and a lot of people were suggesting using butternut because its easy to carve. I first used a dremmel with a pointy bit (I’ve attached pics with the bit creases) but it wasnt smooth. I bought a woodburning kit after from amazon and it worked great (the wood smelled like burnt for like 3 days and i just used a toothbrush in between the creases and it doesnt smell anymore 64D68FE7-81F4-4E0D-ACC2-E8D1C9673FA7.jpeg 594AD319-8CE7-4328-8D99-4051D9A9E094.jpeg
