SEAN SUMAGAYSAY’S GODZILLA
Although the foam was already used to give the suit’s overall design and shape, along with the patterns of it’s scales. It still needed it’s skin texture and color to give it life.
The cast was successful (it snapped at the center, I forgot to add a thicker layer of plaster in that area, not a loss though) I’ll have a second set of this same pattern to have double the latex work, I’ll be doing the same with the next set of patterns.
This skin patch is ready for gluing! I mixed basic ivory black acrylic with the liquid latex, which is more affective than painting directly on a dried one. The mix looks light gray at first but darkens back to it’s rightful color when it dries. P.S.: To remove the latex, be sure to cover it with some talcum or baby powder on both sides to keep it from sticking to itself.
I realize that the most difficult part for now is cutting and folding the latex onto the already overlapping scales on the extremities. Once I’m past that then I should be good to go for the rest of the suit.
