It's a good thing I like you more than I hate gifs ;)

I love your Handmaid. The horns must have been incredibly fiddly to make and you've got all the details down, even the little traily bit on the dress <3

Horns done! (Posted 21st May 2012)

Most awkward things to sand and paint EVER.

Horn Painting Progress (Posted 21st May 2012)

Just a quick base coat

Horns Progress 2 (Posted 18th March 2012)

Ran out of expanding foam and that shit's expensive so I bulked up the rest with tinfoil. Then I wrapped it all in masking tape (used an entire roll for each horn) to cover any holes and to flatten any lumps, and to help keep the tinfoil compacted against the horn.

Finally I covered each horn with 1 packet of 250g fimo air dry light each.

Horns Progress 1 (Posted 18th March 2012)

I made the base shape out of armature wire and then covered it with expanding foam. Had to do this in a few different stages because the foam would fall off the top pieces of wire so I could only work on the part of the horn that was touching the newspaper at a time.
