Winter is coming and besides the bitter cold, that means White Walkers. Instructables user rexrothwell went above and beyond the Wall in the North to create his frightening take on the Others from Game of Thrones. He began by making a head bust of himself and then sculpted and cast the finished mask in latex. He used a similar process for his hands and torso and painted everything in black, white, and blue paint. He even mixed in fake snow spray for the full wintry effect. Some details on how he made the mask:
I found edging out the detail with small strips of Monster makers clay was the best way to replicate the extremely wrinkled texture of the “Others” skin, the more i did this the easier and predictable it became and i was able to create some fairly good texture with it.
After smoothing by hand and with various sculpting tools i brushed the sculpt with alcohol 98% to smooth out the rough texturing and bring everything together. next i went over with fine detail texture using a wire brush and some crinkled up aluminum foil to create pours, skin imperfections and fine wrinkles.
After the detail layer i sealed the sculpt with Krylon clear spray.
