Begins Gauntlets Ready to Mold - Pics


Hi Gang,

On a whim today a threw together some Begins styled gauntlets out of foamies. I used a few reference pics from off the board, and mostly the big 30" figure. These were done in an afternoon so I know they aren't flawless.

My next step will be to clay in the visible seams and add the correct roundness to the ribbing along the inner forearm as shown on the green background poster I have seen posted on a few threads.

I will be making a two part ultracal stone mold tomorrow so I can cast these in a nice heavy black latex. One of the things I have noticed missing from most of the gauntlets I have seen done so far is the compound curve of the lower forearm muscle, which I have endeavored to get in this set that I have done.

Hopefully by Monday I should have pics of the final latex pulls. I am also working on sculpting some nice fins with the right bevels and tapers.

At the time of these pics I have given the foamies a single coat of spray dip it and plan on adding a few more layers once the cleaning up is finished.
