  • Tim Martin: Okay so today we're going to mold and finish this Anubis head and what I want

  • to do is because this is going to end up being a one-time use hard object, I'm going to eventually

  • cast it out of rigid foam, but I'm also going to do a hard mold on top of it.

  • You do have a small window of opportunity as this plaster is setting up, because it

  • does set up fast, to actually almost kind of pseudo sculpt your wall, like I said pinching

  • your fingers together and kind of creating a 90-degree angle, but the firmer it gets,

  • the easier it is to do that and then all of a sudden it will get really hard and then

  • you're done.

  • It goes from an opaque and then when it starts to kick off, it becomes clear again before

  • it starts to rise. That's a good indication, when you know this is going to go off, is

  • when it starts to clear up again. Constantly rotating it will keep kind of let

  • gravity work with you.

  • Now we're out of the paint booth and I've done several layers of spray paints and what

  • I want to get into is some metallic dry brushing and then some washes, and then some dry brushing,

  • and then some detailed painting, so I kind of go back and forth. First thing I want to

  • do is, I want to do some dry brushing on this to make it a little bit more gold and a little

  • brighter on the high points.

  • The reason I've decided to go with grey and not black is because I figure also this black

  • is very, very clean pristine color and I want this to look old so may be the original black

  • is faded into a dark grey. It'll probably still read as black but I never really use

  • white or black when I'm painting anything. It just seems so obvious as a paint job. If

  • you feel like you can back over at it again with washes, you can go back over it again

  • with some of the gold, bring out some of the highlights, but I think that I'm very happy

  • with the end result.
