Trini needs your help!

Hey guys :)About a week or so ago I bought and received a Vac pull of a show used Yellow Mighty Morphin Power Rangers helmet (front half only) and I have been trying to figure out how to go about making a casting from it. I've only been doing pr props for close to two years...so I gotta learn this sometime, right? lol. I mean, but I dont know anything. What would I use? I would probably need a release agent, right?

I'm just really quite clueless, I've never done anything like this before, and I'm kinda too scared to expirament with it, this thing costed me a pretty penny.

but ANY help you could give me, I would appreciate so so much :)

Here are some pics




Thanks for your time, guys. I REALLY appreciate it.

Why did you get that? Just kidding, I never really got into power rangers, but I remember when the very first one came out I had a crush on the pink ranger. I actually think she may have been in my very first wet dream. Weird.

What is your plan for the mold? Are you going to make more vacuum formed masks or a solid bust or a power ranger door knocker from the mold?

This seems to be the recommended book for this sort of thing:

The prop builders molding and casting handbook by Thurston James.

This is a 4 year old thread, and Jessica has not been here since 2007.

I doubt anything has been done with this.

Re: Trini needs your help!

That's going to happen any time new members join, and is very understandable.
And just FYI, she actually cast the inside of the pull and sculpted a back half to make a full helmet. She sold a few copies but I'm not sure if she still does or not.
