Yes, the mouth walls. I'll try and get a good sized shot to show how it should look. :)


I've already started fixing it! :toothy it was a bit boring because I had to redo several things, and the mustache still needs a touch up, but much more precise than before! how do you see it? :thumbsup

Which of the two pictures show the progress? I assume it is the left one as the nose looks a bit bigger and the sides look a bit fatter.

no the one on the right is ip result of the changes, probably not having taken the photo in the same place is a little different with the lights! if you look in the right you can see the corners of the mouth go more diagonally towards the outside, I have widened them a lot compared to before! :wink:

this is the final result after the most recent changes! there are some little things that I will fix before the mold, but in general it seems good to me! :thumbsup

hello guys, I was now at the point of being satisfied with the sculpture and so I decided that the next modifications I will do directly on the first cast in fiberglass! so I started making the mold, as soon as it dries well I will make the external mold in fiberglass! stay tuned! :toothy

hello guys, this is the first test of the mold, fortunately it turns out like the sculpture! this is just a test to see how it was, there is still a lot of work to do and experience to be acquired with fiberglass! But I'm glad that finally the sculpture came to life! :toothy

Looking fantastic. The current rough look is actually pretty interesting and could be a fine art-house piece in its own right, so it will kinda be a little sad to see it get cleaned up and removed to leave a nice finish.

Looking forward to further work. :)

you are right, in fact this that is the first one besides this layer of paint will not see other changes, I will leave it raw so, it will remain as memory! the next I will do it very thick to finish it well and to fix things that I don't like! :thumbsup

I really like this look so raw, it shows all the work there has been! :toothy

thank you guys! :thumbsup the idea is that with the next cast finish the mask well and then I'll do another mold with the finished one! already getting this far for me is a success, when I started sculpting it was a bit of a game, and I didn't really expect to find myself with the printed mask! and I especially have to thank this forum, I learned so many things about Vader, without this information the mask would not have been like this! :ac6 thank you guys! finished the next mask will begin with the dome! :wink:

little update, the all-black paint didn't make the corners well, so I put the finishing touches before starting the new cast! :wink:

I like the roughness of it. Incidentally, it has the same reversed curve up the face like seen on the GH masks, but can potentially be corrected a bit by working on the right side of the neck (left in picture). I can try and do an illustration of what I mean by "curve".

thank you it would be very kind of you if you can give me an example! I'm going to see if there's anything on this GH mask to understand! perhaps the right side should curve less at the bottom!
