I helped a friend with his costume, he was going as skeletor so I thought it would be good to create a decent skeletor skull that he could wear perfectly on his face. It has a seperate jaw so that it would be able to move when he talked.
First off, I had to cast his face.
Which resulted in this positive cast from the mold.
On top of this I sculpted the skeletor face in plastilene, basing it partly on the animated version and partly on the live action movie.
I then used silicon putty to coat the sculpture in a nice thick layer as I would be casting the finished piece in hard polyurethane resin. Here’s the finished painted piece.
