White Rock Shooter Eye-Flame Tutorial by decemberwynn White Rock Shooter Eye-Flame Tutorial by decemberwynn
As promised, I have begun to upload the workmanship info for White Rock Shooter. I figured the Eye-flame workmanship could double as a tutorial - I hope that its useful! Next I'll upload the either the clothing workmanship or the Rock Blade workmanship. You can find more pictures of the costume here: [link]

SPANISH TRANSLATION:

(I am not very good at Spanish. Most of this tutorial was translated by Google translate, so I apologize for any errors. Also, feel free to point out any language errors if you see any, I would adore the help!)

Primero creé la llama con goma espuma. El modelo fue creado con tres capas de espuma para crear detalles. Este modelo se utilizó para crear el molde. Por lo tanto, lo hice el tamaño exacto y la forma que yo quería las últimas piezas que sean.

Una vez que el modelo de goma espuma era completa, pinté muchas capas de Podge modge sobre la espuma para sellarlo.

El siguiente paso fue crear el molde de látex. Puse el modelo de espuma sobre una superficie lisa (la parte superior de una carpeta de plástico) para hacer el molde. El uso de látex fabricante de moldes, he pintado una capa muy delgada de látex en la parte superior y en los laterales del modelo de espuma. Después de esta capa se seca, pinté en muchas más capas de látex en el modelo, asegurándose de que cada capa seca antes de comenzar la siguiente. Cuando fue lo suficientemente gruesa, dejo que el molde se seque completamente y luego tiré a la basura desde el modelo de espuma.

A continuación, yo echo de resina en el molde. Coloreé la resina con magenta India Ink. Yo no uso mucho tinte, para que la llama sería translúcido. Dejé que la resina se endurezca durante una semana. He encontrado que la resina de toma más tiempo para curar en el látex que lo hace en menos moldes flexibles.

Después de retirar la llama del molde, lijé la llama mientras está húmedo con papel de lija de grano 1000. Yo llevaba una máscara de partículas y lijado fuera porque el polvo de resina es venenoso. Una vez que todas las superficies de la llama eran lisas, lijé con 1,500 y 2,000 papel de lija.
Después de lijar la llama, he añadido tres capas de barniz aerosol para que sea brillante.

Yo desmonté un viejo par de gafas de sol con el fin de obtener el brazo. I superglued el brazo vasos hasta la esquina inferior derecha de la llama. Este brazo de enganche en mi oído.

Para llevar la llama, me pongo el brazo por encima de mi oreja derecha y luego utilizo spirit gum para conectar la llama en mi frente.

I have tried my hardest! My Spanish is not very good, so I mostly used a translating web site. I really hope this helps, though, and please let me know if something doesn't make sense!

Do you have to seal the craft foam before painting on the latex? I don't know anything about latex and resin and all that, and I don't want to buy something unnecessary, but if sealing it makes the latex mold better then I guess I'd have to.

It looks amazing by the way!

Yep, you'll definitely want to seal the craft foam before working with the latex. Although, you might actually have the materials to do that already! Oftentimes I seal my craft foam with tacky glue, but another method is using a mixture of 1/2 elmer's glue 1/2 water - I have found it to work just as well.

Thanks so much!

I love your tutorial. I think you explain it very well and it's very useful ^^

Do you think the latex mold method would be effective with a pyramid form? I mean, build a pyramid model and make the mold with latex, and then cast a resin pyramid with it.

:icondecemberwynn:
decemberwynn Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2012
Thank you for your compliments!

I think that you could make the pyramid form work, but it would be tricky with the latex mold. Once the mold was complete, you would have to suspend it somehow to be able to cast in it. If you made sure to make the mold very thick, and gave it lots of room along the edges, it might work out. Then you could suspend it over a shoe box (or something of that nature) using popsickle sticks glued to the edges of the mold.

Another option would be make the pyramid from something else - say, foam - and then coat it in resin. But that would only be effective if you don't need it to be translucent. If you do go for this option, I would recommend using a different type of resin that you can find at home depot. It dries faster and is more effective when working with small layers.

I hope that helps! Feel free to shoot me more questions, I'm happy to answer them!

You're welcome! ^^

Yeah, I thought about different ideas like four legs on the vertexes (like a table) or an hand-made box with the same base perimeter for let it suspend there, and things like those.

I need it to be translucent, but I keep in mind your foam idea! It's cool and could help sometime.

I need to make some pyramidal jewels for my next cosplay and I don't find any mold with this form. Now I know it's possible to do with latex (I was a little doubtful) and I will try it! ^_^

If I have any doubt I will ask you ^_^ Thank you very much!

I had another thought, too. You could always build the mold out of something rigid, like quilting template, making sure that the edges are all watertight. To get the cast out you would have to break the mold, but it might be easier to get smooth, even surfaces that way. Oh, and don't forget you can always cast into pans that you find at Michael's. I had to make some resin hearts once, and I cast into a metal pan, and then I just had to put the solid casts in the freezer to get them out.

Either way, good luck! I'll be intrigued to see how it goes!

I've been thinking a lot in these ideas too, but I don't know how to make the edges fit with precision. Maybe if I glue them very carefully and then cover the surface with hot glue or something like that, I fill the posible holes. I could check the invention with some water too before I try to cast the resin in.
About the pans, I've been looking for some I could use, but it seems it doesn't exist with this strange form xD

I will show you the process and results! Thank you very much!
