    I dig your Bumblebees, but did you actually smooth out the diamond plate on Longarm?

    Why would you do that?

    looks like baremetal foil to me. he didn't smooth it out, he just didn't push it down hard and equally enough to let the molded details show through the foil.

    So HOW did you make the battle mask? I know you used putty but that doesnt tell us how you actually go about making a mask out of that stuff. Awesome work on the mask!

    Ok... i knew that, i was looking for a more in-depth answer like how to sculpt such fine detail and realistic proportions, and how to make sure it fits on the original head. Would Milliput work also?

    Milliput is too soft in my opinion and the window to actually get some good detailed sculpt is very small, to sculpt with apoxie sculpt, or super sculpty work much better.

    Battle masks 101.Pop head off.Wrap in tinfoil.smooth contours down with old short haired STIFF paintbrush.Get reference photo.Get epoxy putty,aves or kneadatite,milliputs ok but you'll need to wait a fair bit till it's cured to a workable consistency.sculpt away.let it cure.Peel off tinfoil....Voila!Battl mask EXACTLY shaped to the head.The tintoil can be carefully peeled off.You then paint it up and use a tiny blob of Blu tac to fix to head.Sculpy is too brittle though a good medium for other stuff.The epoxy putty is durable and has a little bit of give in it.

    i like super sculpty because the window to work the clay..is endless.
    it's a bit more fraile than apoxie, but strong enough, in fact i think stronger than some of the plastics on the actual TFs, if cooked right...

    Im a bit confused about the wrapping in tinfoil part. If the whole head is wrapped in tinfoil how dos it pop out when the putty has cured over it? Wouldnt it be sealed inside the putty at that point? Or do you mean only wrap the face and front half of the head in tin foil?

    Battle mask is only a front half head sculpt.So when it's dry you unpeel the foil from the head,then peel the foil from the mask.
