View Full Version : Help Needed: Crafting skulls onto armour

05-25-2011, 03:37 AM
Hello i am trying to make a Death Knight costume from World of Warcraft. I am doing a costume similar to: http://nipah.files.wordpress.com/2009/11/afa09-be-dk.jpg

I love the idea of the skulls on the shoulders but have no idea how to do this. I have looked on the web for skull buttons / badges and even plaque type things so i could mould wonderflex into the shape but there is nothing the right size or it cost way more that i am willing to spend.

Any ideas?

I think there are several ways you could do those. You could carve them all individually out of expanding or pink foam, or use apoxie sculpt to sculpt them all individually (they'd be ready to paint with just the apoxie sculpt, wouldn't need to sand too much and it has zero shrinking) or you could sculpt them with clay, make a mold and cast them out of a light foam or resin... but that last one is more expensive.
