Well my Bib project is going no where, but my R2 project is now flying!

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

Well let's see, I have been working a lot lately on R2 (yeah if you didnt' already know, I'm building an R2 too). He is finally standing tall, with motors installed, but now needs power. should be done this week.

Well, I don't have any pictures, but since I was showing someone else this blog, I figured I would provide an update.

As many of you already know I created a head casting (more like a bust) of myself. I attached that to the pike you see in the pictures below and filled it with foam. I have sorta succeeded. I bought cheep foam that requires access to air to dry. Next time I will buy the good stuff that will self dry in a vacum if required.

Anyways, the head on the pike looks pretty bad right now, but hopefully within 2 weeks after free comic book day I will have the head cleaned up and the first layer of clay on it.

I'll see if I can't find a picture and post one in a few days.

OK, It's been a while since an update.

In one of my last updates I created a plaster bandage cheep head mold. Well last night I took that mold and created a head on a pike with rebar head tails. I am waiting on more pictures, but here is a start.

Hello once again.

Today I picked up a 4.5 lb brick of oil based clay for $13.50 after my discount. I plan to use this small amount of clay to make my first attempt at sculpting. It will be an Emperor.

Tonight Clay and others will also be giving me a hand making a second head bust. This time it will be much less detailed and will be made only from plaster bandages. I will then cut wholes in the back of the mold to fit over the rebar lekku previously created and then pour in foam for the head. I hope to have something to start sculpting to by the end of the weekend.

I found a good site on making ovens. I will most likely need to build my own for baking the foam latex.
