Man I have no idea how you would even start to make a mold of this thing.
... No kidding!!! I'm going to have to figure it out. It's going to have to be in sections. I'm thinking of just like the ROTJ reveal helmet itself.

I came the the RPF this morning just to post a new thread asking if anyone had thought of doing a replica! Not only have you started, but it's magnificent MasterEdi! Well done. Count be in for a casting or even a commission if it's too hard to recast.

Ya know how a carved apple rots turning into an old lady face? Vaders helmet looks like three days. Your sculpt looks like day 6. If you could 'poof it out' a little, it will be dead on.....no pun. Trying to be helpfull as your sculpting skills are fantastic. Just giving you another fresh set of eyes.

Thanks for the 'Like". Its always tough gauging a strangers reaction to constructive criticism. But without it, there will never be version 1.5, 2.0 etc. haha. He looks great so far, I hope you work on it, let it sit and 'cook' ( Cook is a term I use when working on a project....let it sit for a while and when I come back, I can pick out the things that need fixin).

BTW, everyone does the main props, its the obscure ones I like the most, like this.!!!

Thanks for the advice! Much appreciated... You get tunnel vision as you work on things this complicated over long sculpting sessions. I see what your saying. Sometimes stepping away for a while is the best thing to do. It allows you to approach things with fresh eyes. I will be finalizing and 'poofing' out my sculpt in the next couple of weeks. I definitely am leaning toward making it similar to a reveal helmet. It would solve a lot of the casting issues. As soon as I figure it out, I will be posting a limited run thread for everyone's overwhelming interest!... Stay tuned:thumbsup

Hand sculpted. I'm using my personal favorite oil/wax based clay Chavant Le Beau Touché.... Give it a try if your a sculptor!
