Marty gets a helmet

Today I tackled the helmet. How to do it and do it in one day? Simple. Some aluminium wire, bend a helmet shape around the head. Make a pattern and sculpt in clay the form in one half. Make an alginate mold. Pour it in Ultra Cal 30 and vacuum form it in clear. And that’s what I did. I just taped it together for a look. It needs a collar and interior brace and a few other things but it off to a good start. more next week.

    I love that classic light bulb shape that’s so reminiscent of early Sci-Fi. 😀
