I'm trying to understand what they added to the inside of Bales Cowls to fit him just right He really doesn't have a big head or jaw.
Yeah I know they took a life cast of his whole body and then sculpted everything off of that.

Re: Original Batshop fiberglass begins cowl


your right, he doesnt have much of a jaw.

basically they sculpted on this lifecast, made a mould, then removed the clay and put his lifecast back in the mould. now there is a cavity where the clay was. This is then injected with foam latex so that the outside looks like the cowl and the inside is a negative of bales head so it will fit him pefectly.

theres a few more steps than that but hopefully that gives you the gist.

I pulled the cowl last night and unfortunatly there are a few airbubbles in teh surface so its scrap. im have just enough rubber to try again so wish me luck
