Anonymous asked: What did you make the armor out of on the scout costume? (You guys look great, by the way!)
We used a combination of worbla, wonderflex, and InstaMorph for the armor. Take this pauldron for example…
1: The base layers are Wonderflex. Buckle cut several copies of the pattern and attached like-pieces together to build up a thicker, more realistic looking surface and to keep it from warping. Buckle used Wonderflex because it is slightly lighter than Worbla and on a 3 layer piece that can be a significant difference in weight.
2. The curved section is Worbla. Worbla and Wonderflex are almost identical, except that Wonderflex has a fiberglass mesh underlayer and Worbla does not. This mesh prevents Wonderflex from bending into a spherical shape, but also helps it retain the form it’s cut into, and keeps it from sticking to itself when you don’t want that. For this reason, Wonderflex is better suited to angular forms while Worbla is better for curves.
3. For designs on the armor, it adds realism to render them in three dimensions rather than painting them on. In this case, Buckle cut long thin strips of Wonderflex, rolled them into tubes, then cut the tubes to size and stuck them on the base.You can use Worbla for this process as well, but Buckle likes Wonderflex so she uses that.
4. The swirls appear smooth and sculptural in the concept art so Buckle used InstaMorph to mold them. InstaMorph is a sculpting plastic that comes in pellet form. Unlike Super Sculpy, InstaMorph naturally smooths itself as it sets so you shouldn’t need to sand or fill it. This can save a lot of time. InstaMorph is pretty dense so you’ll need metal sculpting tools to carve details like this channel into it. You also need to lay down the InstaMorph and detail it in one heat cycle or else you could melt and deform the Worbla underneath.
5. Keep layering to add details and realism, using whichever material is most appropriate. Spikes should be smooth, so we made them out of InstaMorph. These ones are actually really sharp!
6. After painting (Chase Champion Metallic or Krylon spray paint are recommended for shiny pieces as they go on smoother than hand-painting with acrylic) always add a darker color in the crevices to push the depth of the sculpting so it shows up better in pictures. If desired, you can also make the piece look a little dirty and worn by lightly brushing on dark brown or black acrylic and polishing it off the same as you would shoe polish on a boot.
Hope this tutorial helps and good luck with you prop making!
I say that I like tea to be strong, like a slap in the face.
Which is true, but really it’s because me making tea goes something like this:
Boiling water, do-do-do-do-dooooo
Stare into the middle distance.
What’s that smell? Oh, it’s the water boiling over.
Cleaning the burners, do-do-do-do-doooooo
Pour water add tea bag.
Boy these pants look nice on me.
Where did that bruise come from? It looks like Hawaii…
Bitter, gross! Spit.
I hate it but I want more.
