ORC Helmet... by Pirkleations ORC Helmet... by Pirkleations
One of the two spray foam goblin helmets I had to carve really quickly. This one is ready for Halloween!
Both helmet designs were based on LOTR orc helmets.
This one almost has a Cylon Centurion look to it.
It's painted with a base of flat black spray paint and acrylic colors for the ancient, rusted metal look. used thumb tacks for the rivets.
The other helmet sold on EBay for $35.

Pretty darn good! The aging effects look really super.

Thanks!

I may be in trouble if I ever have to do smooth, non-decayed armor though!!
Thanks for adding the Bob images to your collection!

Wow! Do I see air bubbles in the foam? They add to the ancient effect. We found that foam to be very expensive, and it didn't work too well for a tombstone. It had too many large air bubbles in it. Is there stuff made specially for sculpting?

Thanks for the compliments!

I recall a two-part urethane foam that has a much denser pack with very little bubbling. I think it's sometimes called marine foam. But it is not cheap either.

Here's a link to the stuff...

The air bubbles in the spray foam worked out perfect for Bob and Dennis' hardware. But if I ever need to make smoother armor, I can still use the foam and re-surface with paper-mache or something else.

Thanks for asking!

The finish on this is absolutely fantastic! It really looks like old beat-up metal.

Thanks!

That's the beauty of spray foam insulation. It looks good even when it's full of bubbles and uneven surfaces!

I don't have much experience with that, but I'll definitely be considering it as a method. I've done a couple of props, but not much lately. I'm surprised that you were able to spraypaint it without the urethane getting all melty!

Once spray insulation foam cures, it has a lot more strength than regular styrofoam.
In the case of the helmet, though, I used latex mixed with acrylic paint.

Very cool. My wife & I have used the pink insulation foam before, with a sealant, and it's surprisingly strong, too!

that looks really awsome! I'm going to have to try this spray foam eventually.
