3D Masks Part 2: Casting Eyeballs
On 11, Mar 2015 | No Comments | In Fabrication | By Steve Leeper
As part of fitting the replacement mask I needed to make sure that the eyeballs fit perfectly into the sockets in the base of the head. This meant casting a silicone rubber version of the plastic eyeballs and pinning them to the inside of the replacement (ouch) and then casting the base for the head. Hopefully the pictures will make a little more sense.
A HUGE thanks to Brenda Baumgarten at stopmotionsilicone.com for helping me step through this process.
BTW For those who are interest the gloppy blue lolly-pop in the first image is a brush-on mold making rubber by Smooth-on called Mold Star 16. Pretty sweet stuff!
