I’ve made a first test/prototype of the armour. There is a lot I’m not satisfied with, so I know what to change for the real thing.
- Better forming and shaping the base; there are ugly joints and the general shape is not round enough. I’ll see if I can use joint foam (fogskum) and sculpt the more rounded shapes.
- Consult the references more often to make sure it has the correct shape.
- Spray thinner layers to prevent flowing color and ugly miss-shapes in the color (see 4th image).
- Be more patient between the layers; make sure that it has completely hardened before I continue to work on it.
