Making a Microphone Prop

I've been working on making seven headsets as props for the upcoming film After The Fall by Randolph Scott. After futzing around with different approaches to fabricating a microphone, none of which were working, I stepped back and took a different approach.

I looked for a simple turning of the right size, in this case a rook chess piece, and paired it with a brass concho.

With a little plasticene I stuck them together, molded them in silicone rubber and cast it in urethane resin. After laser engraving some texture onto the top, voilĂ , I had my finished mic, shown on the right.
