Hi guys,

I recently made the entire set of dragon priest masks from the game, so I decided to step it up a notch.
Still cardboard and air drying clay on top and a massive amount of cheap superglue for strength.
The horns, so I don't waste a couple of packs of clay on those alone, I made out of a cardboard frame which I then filled with boiled paper, which resulted in a paper pulp paste. great filler material and it's pretty strong in the end.
Here;s some build pics and the end result as well (ignore the stencil in the sketching pics please:facepalm) :

Just goes to show that you don't need high end materials to create an awesome looking prop. Came out looking great! And that paint job is gorgeous.

I haven't had a chance to play the game yet, but the weathering on that is very impressive!

Hey guys, thank you for your appreciations, they mean a lot to me. I can't exactly put up a template here as it was made by hand, first a4 sheets of paper, then drawn out on cardboard. I did think before glueing it permanently to make another stencil on another piece of cardboard, but I've cut that one up in the process of making a daedric dagger. However, I promise you that I'll try tonight to trace the pictures in Illustrator or something and digitalize the thing. Then you can print it on whatever size you wish.

Later edit:

Forgot to add, I eyeballed the top part of the helmet, I cut triangles and then made them fit, toghether with a strip going from side to side.

I STRONGLY recommend that you don't do this, cause it's a pain to get right and to get them to sit still while the glue dries up. If I'm ever making one again, or any, of any kind, I'll do the top part as a paper mache, much easier.
