Casting the Head!!

Today I have cast the head. I used a two part urethane casting resin that was slush cast in the silicone mold we made earlier.

Here is a photo of the urethane slush cast in the mold. This takes time, patience and several coats!

Here is the cast demolded from the mold. Note all the detail from the mold!

The next part of the project is to cut out the mouth. From there we will build a functional mouth with detailed teeth and tongue and then its time to install the mechanics!!
Stay tuned for my next Blog when we will install a moving mouth, raising eyebrows and maybe a stick out tongue!!

    Nice! I'm looking for a new dummy, not my husband, even though he did give me a joke to tell at my last show and it was not funny. It's who I call Semore. I've gone through 2 and I'm on my third. Besides from getting very worn and replacing parts over the years he also is heavy. Not because he's gained wait, I'm getting older. I started when I was ten and I'm now 51, which is by the way is a lot younger than it sounds. I don't know if you've talked about weight but I was wondering, how heavy are they?

    i was wondering if you could tell me why some figure makers put so much black around figures eye lines guess what they call it?

  7. Hi All, My figures weigh anywhere from 3 to 6 lbs. Depends on what they are made from. As far as the dark around the eyes, that is to help to make the eyes stand out more especially from a distance, plus some figures just look better with the dark outline around the eyes. Some figure makers don't do that, but most classic looking figures have the dark around the eyes.

    Mike I am making my own figure following your steps. I have everything done except for the urethane resin past part. Where do I purchase that? I have searched online and have found SO many of them. Not sure which one to go with. What did you use for your project?
