So recently after a (failed) attempt at casting some bionicle 2015 parts... I figured using DIY silicone putty wasn't going to cut it very well when putting mask molds together. So I dropped 30 bucks on some legit tin-based liquid silicone for mold making and gave mask making another go. Same mask as my very first attempt last winter, with more or less the same techniques. And here are the results!

The best part is silicone molds can be re-used hundreds of times as long as you don't stress them too much, and clean them properly. The mask is glossy and fits nice and snug on mata and metru toa heads. Some imperfections on the surface were due to some errors in the casting and mold making, as this was my first time creating a mold from pourable silicone. I should be able to avoid these in the future. Other than some super tiny bubbles hidden away behind the mask, and greater light passage due to the type of plastic used, the final product was more or less a near-perfect replica of the original mask. Once I've practiced the method enough, I may put together a tutorial video on how to cast masks out of resin.

Managed to track down a place that sells quick-setting polyurethane resin at a low price. I made the mold out of DIY silicone putty (Silicone caulk + corn starch) and then cast the mask using the resin. It's not perfect though. Had to do a fair amount of sanding. And for some reason the resin stuck a bit too well to the mold, possibly due to the corn starch. I plan on painting it and applying some varnish eventually. I might paint it black and re-create Mata Nui Akhmou. http://40.media.tumblr.com/c5e24934d5f0f5ff37b27ae271ebe993/tumblr_nl4srlyhzH1sapiqzo1_1280.png http://41.media.tumblr.com/43e97e09f07992fc427e7bc5b08766c4/tumblr_nl4srlyhzH1sapiqzo2_1280.png Bonus MOC http://41.media.tumblr.com/faf3705d9189aeaa88ad684ccad758f2/tumblr_nl4srlyhzH1sapiqzo3_1280.png
