:target: The Project
My fiancé and I are working on the project of making a wolf fullsuit. It should be wearable for days, to go on a Live Action Role Play (LARP). But we want to do it with different Addons, like stilts and when its possible Anmiatronics inside.

This is the fourth step of a little photo-walkthrough making the mask for my manwolf.

:devart: Materials
Mask from the third part of the Walkthroug, metal bars, screws and nuts, slouches/rivets, modelling clay, fimo, latex, flour, plaster bandage, metal web, needle and string. maybe I´ve forgotten some things
:bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite:

:bulletblack: making the joint
I cutted the mask in two pieces to open the mouth. Althoug I made the holes for the eyes. To make the mask comfortable to wear, I added a bit of foam in the inside near the eyes and a rubber band to hold it.

I bought some metal bars from the craftsstore, but I´ve heard you could use plastic even better. Well I had this, so it´s my choice. With screws and nuts I placed the joint. A punch helped me to make the holes in the mask.
The nuts unfastened themselves, so I took rivets to fit the jaw in the end.
That was good, because they are light, they hold the weight and don´t take so much room.

:bulletblack: resin jaw
I took the metal web and cuttet it into the form of the mouth, but with a bit more which I bended around, that I could sew it later to the mask. Then I modeled the jaw with childrens clay. It was really soft and a pain in the ass. Then I made a negative form like I did with the mask, but before came three layers of pure latex to capture the details.
Then I made a positive out of resin.
When it was finished I wasn´t really happy with the form, so I continued modelling.

I althoug tried to make single teeth with screws inside and a jaw out of foam, but both wasn´t really succesful.

:bulletblack: fimo jaw
I tried Fimo as next step. It´s a littlebit harder than the childrens clay and when I had finished the upper jaw I could bake it and had a hard form to fit in the other one.

Doing the next step (moving lips) I found out that I wasn´t able to open the mouth enough to put a spoon in it. So I decided to redo it once again.

Note: Have a look that the snout has been cuttet a lot during the jaw-making-process. That´s because I wanted to make moving lips and you need do see the teeth and the gum. The clay model of the mask was modelled with a closed jaw, but now I need the form of a open one. The wood-glue helped me to make the mask harder at the places where I cuttet it.

hängt davon ab wie viel Leim man nimmt. Meine erste Maske waren 4 Stoffschichten mit einem halben Pott Leim. Das war extrem stabil. Bei der hier sind es 3 Stoffschichten mit ca. 1/4 Pott Leim. Gerade der Unterkiefer "verzieht" etwas und ist mir noch etwas zu flexibel/wabbelig. Wie man aber an den glänzenden Stellen sieht kann man ganz passabel ein wenig nachhärten. Ich würds mit Drahtgeflecht vergleichen. Die Haushaltsschere kriegt es noch klein, doch hat schon arge Probleme.

Nach allem was ich gehört hab wurden früher aus 6-7 Schichten Rüstungen gemacht. Vielleicht hilft da eine Googel-Suche nach Linothorax weiter. :shrug:

What type of resin did you use for the teeth? It's yellow O.o

Polyamber resin [link]

It was cheeper than the clear resin so I took it for the first try. I think Later I´ll take the clear resin and paint it. Or I´ll take the amber resin with Fomaform (hardener). Then it will be white and maybe I can make a concave form.
