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.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
