How to Cast and Sculpt Armor

armor sculpting

When you’re approaching a suit of armor, you have several steps to consider. Bioweapons has laid out a detailed step-by-step how to showing you how to go from planning and referencing to body casting to molding to painting – with many more in between. The tutorial is lengthy, but it’s a great place to start if you’re considering an armor project of your own.

The photo above features a helmet sculpted from Plastilina Oil based clay. You can purchase it at most art and craft shops, and the clay is suited for designs that don’t have a ton of intricate details. Once the basic shape was in place, Bioweapons blocked out different areas and added and subtracted where necessary. The key in this step is patience and taking the time to get it just right. Visit Bioweapons’ site for the full sculpting tutorial.
