I got some more work done!
Here I had to add some more expanding foam around the eye piece to build the ridge that would form the edge of a brow on the eye socket of a skull, you can see this here
right below the horn.
And my good friend came over to work on cars, after that he helped me with the fiberglassing. I managed to make a few parts already, but he worked in a body shop before and had a LOT of pointers for me.
Here are some shots of laying the first few sheets and resin.
(my friend is brushing the resin into/onto the fiberglass)
Below are some more pics that cant be thumb'd due to post limit of 5 pics. There is still some more carving and shaping to be done, and now I have to go back and grind down/sand/body filler the fiberglassed areas. With that said though, this really is coming along nicely.
By the way, we learned that ambient temperature has a TREMENDOUS affect on cure time for the resin. This stuff should be tacky in 30 minutes, firm and solid in an hour. I had some stuff wind up kind of rubbery after 8 hours O_o so since its colder outside, we had to use waaaaay more hardener in the solution than recommended. Sounds expensive TT_TT
Final coat of resin for the day.
