Metal Kanohi (from the past)

Recommended Posts

It's good to see you back on BZPower! These masks are pretty cool and I was wondering, do you have a way to cast transparent Kaukau or paint over them while leaving the visor transparent?

Wow these are really cool and pretty to look at. the Naturally two-toned Hau and the Kraata I think are my favorites even though I'd have no use for the later. Have you thought about going into the Gen2 era of Masks? Also di these work well as actual set masks or are they simply display pieces? I would think being metal over plastic they could make their wearer's a bit heavy in that regard yes?

Oh wow, that would have some heft to it unless you had a really light alloy.  Still a fully metallic armored Toa would be cool to see. Would they maybe be of one of the metallic elements, Sonics, magnetism, Iron?

Polish it to a fine shine? Yeah tried to make a pun on the Light element, how well did it go over?

It'd be cool if you made the Ignika and the Mask of Creation (once it comes out) in the same color as your Vahi.  Then you could have a collection of all the legendary masks in gold.  That'd look awesome.  :)

This is really cool. I've wanted to try this for a while but I never got around to it. Also I never would have thought about using the actual mask instead of a wax pattern.

Amazing stuff, you know I'm a huge fan of your work and it's good to see you bringing the process back to the forum as your sig link has been broken for a long time! Sorry to see the flawed Huna is missing, that was always one of my personaly favourites ;)

Dude, Flintsmith. This takes me way back. Always been a fan of your stuff and I really like how worn these look.

Hey Flintsmith, I'm the co-owner of Modalt Masks, one of the current leading bionicle customization services. I've been hugely impressed with your work for a long time and have tried similar projects before (both mask color changing and metal mask making), and I'd really appreciate if we could PM a bit so I could ask you some questions!

This is off topic, but your link to the transparent purple Kaukau doesn't work.

Thanks Gonny!

 

You're welcome and I appreciate the shout out. I saw this topic a while back but forgot to post. I really like these masks. I feel like they may not all look perfect, but that sort of rough texture makes them look like more like they could have been worn by the characters in the story throughout their adventures. I find the process really interesting and am glad you took the time to describe the process in detail. I'm sure there are many people who'd like to attempt something like this if they had the right equipment.

That can also be viewed via webarchive. There's some interesting discussion of the mask there where you can see most people assumed it was molded and you can see what some of the original batch sold for in the B/S/T topic linked in the first post of the above link. I recall at one point, Flintsmith stating that the mask was not molded but had been made purple by applying certain chemicals. Bzpower member, Omega12, was able to achieve similar results.
