What happened on Thursday

More of the same but a lot more progress on the submarine. I got this satin black and I’m not happy with it. I’m hoping today when I go in that it has dried completely and flattened  a bit. If not I’ll go with flat black and clear coat it. I opened up the bridge and some of the mast openings on the sail and did a lot of seam filling and sanding.

The”Iron Giant” first casting from my molds is pointed up pretty well now. In addition to that I vacuum formed the eyes, frosted them and placed them in the head. They pop in for a perfect fit. I just put it over a LED desk lamp to have a look at how they will appear when lighted.

If I choose to make eye lids there is a problem. Being that he was a cartoon, you  can do magical things not possible in the real world. Like have eyelids appear from nowhere. That’s right if the eyes are mounted properly as they appear in the film there is no space to have moving eyelids.

The only thing that can or could be done is to recess the eyes back from the socket they fit in by an 1/8 of an inch and place the eye lids top and bottom connected to a servo. We’ll see. Food for thought.

Samira and Giselle worked on Deadpool and the Visitor baby. On Deadpool today we will  cast  just the eye sections and from that make bucks to vacuum form over before finishing the mask sculpt for molding. You’ll get what we are doing as you follow along.

If you don’t know please click on the pictures to see larger full images. There is,on the bottom right hand corner of every picture,once clicked on,a button to enlarge them full sized. I find most people don’t know this and only look at the mosaic. Now you know. 😉
