I'm not dead/Death-Eater/Jurassic Park Claw

Hello, been super busy with classes and whatnots so I haven't had a lot of time to keep the blog up and continue to force eyeballs over to it. I've still got some irons in the fire for newer, bigger projects, and I'll eventually get some real-life DIY how-to shit on here soon, just haven't had the time or the drive to do so. Anyway.

For Halloween, I finally got a cast cut and painted for Caci's death-eater costume. Her roomie Regan was going as Dr. Grant from Jurassic Park.

Finished Master Sculp. All molds will be made from this sculpt.
Closeup. The entire mandible/cheek area was redone in fiberglass filler.

This is my quick cast off of the mold.  The mold broke twice, I shouldn't have used plaster molds...hard object inside of hard mold = you have to break the mold off with a hammer. Anyway, it damaged the mask and I had to throw the whole thing together in a few hours so the finished product isn't quite as great as it should be.

On to the raptor claw...

Found pics online, made a mock up out of cardboard from a Cheerios box
Molded modeling clay on top of the cardboard, carved out appropriate doodads

Plaster mold made on top, then carved out this side

Empty mold. I keyed it on both sides then poured a combo of resin/filler.

Primer, paint, then more paint, then strategically sanded to look old.
