Even though i should finish Michelangelo, I decided to start a new project…a replica of Judge Death’s helmet. Brian Bolland’s version, of course!

I drew up plans based on my head template. In addition to the helmet, I plan to sculpt a bust of Judge Death as a helmet stand. Interestingly enough, because of his weird alien anatomy, the lower bar of the visor falls right in front of a humans eyes.

I made a 3D model, converted it to a paper model and assembled it.

I slushed Smooth-Cast 300 into the helmet.

The first sanding smoothed it out pretty good. A coat of Bondo will fill in the big dents. Lots more sanding to go!

Despite selling my Dr. Fate helmet, I felt like making an Amulet of Anubis. This is formed on the lathe from MDF.

I painted it with the same paint that I used on the Fate helmet and shipped them off to the buyer.

The resin copies of Michelangelo’s nunchucks got a base coat of brass and a clear coat a week later.

That’s about it for now. I have a few other irons in the fire that I’ll show later!
