Simon tells us a little bit about this project:

This is my take on the mask worn by Mandalore the Ultimate. The Mask was a ceremonial war mask worn by the Mandalore, the leader of the Mandalorian clans.

This Project is pretty easy and (depending on your foamsmithing skills) shouldnt take more then a day or two. And of course this technique can be applied to any kind of mask you want to make.

 

 

The mandalore mask

 

First, I made a model by taking a plastic toy mask and covering it with clay. I did this so that I would get the exact shape I wanted.

Apply air dry clay

 

 

After that, I let the clay dry and then I coverd the entire thing in aluminium foil. After the foil, I everything with tape. I would recommend duct tape for this. After that, I trimmed the edges to the shape i wanted.

Then, to be able get it to lay flat, I made a cut in the top of the template. Yes, this is going to be my template.

Now I layed the template on the foam, traced around it, and cut it out.

After this, I heated up the foam with a heatgun, and then I bent it so that it would get a domed shape. I also glued the top seam.
