Gauntlet help
Okay, so I thought before I launched into this I'd ask for your opinions.



These gauntlety forearm things that Emperor Sparkleface is wearing... I've got myself some wire and metal mesh and am all sorted to begin the rage inducing process of bending and rebending and papier mache and etc. like I did for the wings, but before I do, any cunning/better ideas?

... Also, with these, should I be making some inner arm tube to sit them on or just launch straight into it?

Sorry to be a bother!

hi
You could use mod-rock it is like the plaster cast you get at hospitals for broken arms ect.
the best way to use it is soaking it for a second in hot water try it small first to get used to it hope this helps

That might be an idea indeed, thanks!

I suppose I'd still have to make the frame before using that stuff (here's hoping they have it at my local craft shop)?

Any other input, anyone~? :3

latex can be applied with a brush, but obviously you need something smooth to work it over, micro flece is ideal, and soaks the latex in quite nicely, give it a blast of silicone spray to stop it cracking once its set then paint away..
