    Hello all, I was wondering if anyone had a good method for making a mold of a helmet? I worked very hard to build the helmet, resin and bondo, and would like to make another to play around with and try new stuff with, however if I could just cast and pour a new helmet from my original it would save me weeks.

    It all depends on how much you're willing to spend and what you have to work with. If you plan on making one cast, you must consider if you're willing and able to commit more than a hundred bucks.

    Well I want to cast the ToR Helmet, perhaps 3 casts, and it is a pain to build, and want to cast the helm and the visor separate. I just don't know how to go about making a mold from the helm (without damaging it).

    Hey brother; here is some tutorials that may get you going on the cast; is a 3 parts video, also on the left side of the screen you will see some more videos that tell you what to use in different ways to cast it....

    I hope it helps

    Do you have a picture of your ToR helmet? I would like to see it.
