Mordin Solus Mask WIP 2 by Danosuke Mordin Solus Mask WIP 2 by Danosuke
I'm scuplting a bust of Mordin to Make a latex mask. Here are some cool progress shots.

It's about %90 done. A little touching up and extra detail then it will be time to mold him.

I made one but it may actually be easier to just buy one.

Cool - the form looks good and I like that you did not use too much texture. I also like how you are sculpting the mouth area. Any color ideas yet?

I'm still a beginner with sculpting so this is not an original character. His colors are already laid out. [link] I have to order some casting latex and pros-aid. already have plenty of airbrush acrylic so I think I'm good there. Do you ever have trouble shipping latex in cold weather? I hear if it freezes it ruins it.

Yeah...cod weather can be a problem...the company that sells it hopefully watches out for that!

The latex arrived in good shape and I put it in the mold last night. Just waiting the 48 hours now before I can pull it out. It's exciting since this is the first latex mask I've made.

I was patient and pulled it yesterday. It looks decent but there are more air bubbles than I expected. I wonder if I just didn't clean the clay out well enough. All the tutorials I find online just say pour slush and drain. Do you ever resort to brushing the latex on the difficult spots?

Yes...paint in a couple of layers in both halfs...before you slush.
