I am looking to make her crown, but I'm not really convinced of my methods. I was planning on casting it in resin, but I'm not sure if that's the best idea. For example should the gem and the rest of the crown be cast separately? Or all together and then paint accordingly? If I do cast it should it be made rigid or flexible so I can shape it around my head? I just can't think of how to make those weird hook pieces on the sides without sculpting it out of clay first.
