1:1 Jason The Final Chapter bust. Mold complete! p2

Special thanks to Jim Kagel for sculpting the original in "83, as well as being kind enough to share his reference photos with me. Special thanks also goes to Ryan aka The Death Curse, for sharing his references, and providing great constructive criticism along the way.

Pt4 has always been my favorite Jason and this is definitely the best sculpt I've ever seen of him!

Can't wait to see him finished.

Here are the final comparison images. The left half of the first image is of the original sculpt of Jason done by Jim Kagel, just before being used to cast the makeup for Ted White.

Thanks everybody! I plan on casting this in translucent ren, but if I am able to salvage the sculpt, I am not counting out the posbility of other mediums, and even producing a hood veron for that matter. And, I am taking every posble precaution to ensure the sculpt's survival. Within the next week or 2, I will have an update on the molding and casting status.

Hey everybody! Here are photos from my molding process:

This is my rough little mock up for the casting process. The photos were taken after it was successfully demolded. There was very little damage, the most notable being the left ear.

The bust is fully sealed with acrylic spray, and mold release as I apply my print cote.

A nice detail shot of me ung an air hose to release any air bubbles, and force in detail.

completed print cote. A couple of the following layers. The completed licone mold. As you can see, I had some complications with my clay shim.

Mother mold successfully removed. Just before cutting the seam. Needless to say, this was a very somber moment for me. I really hoped that the sculpt would have fared better. After placing a few pieces back together. Thankfully, all was not lost. The mold turned out beautifully! I am so relieved to finally be finished with stage of the process.

Now, I need to figure out how to safely clean my mold, as clay had very unexpectedly stuck rather tenaciously to the mold.

This looks very good. I'm excited to see the next stage. What did you use for the hard outer shell?

Love this bust! Can't wait to see what happens next!

The sculpture looks fantastic.

Will you make ren busts or only latex masks?
