In the first picture below I have finished casting, shaping and gluing on the resin spoon handles.
This conglomeration is just about ready to mold in preparation for casting in cold cast aluminum.
Above I am working out the pattern for the leather surround in cardstock. This is the piece that will actually touch the face, and will support the two straps. At the bottom of the picture is the pattern laid out flat, with red marking where the straps will attach. A second slightly altered pattern is taped around the acrylic skull in order to check that fit.
