Maker Andrew Sinks is a fan of all things Mad Max and turned to Thingiverse for a model of Immortan Joe’s mask from Fury Road. User filipturze created the model (you can download it here) and Sink printed the mask in two parts on a Makerbot Replicator 5G at .2mm. He said:
Took about six hours to print. I used acetone vapor to smooth the plastic and painted it up in about an hour using dry brushing and some basic washes.
He used Bondo to join the pieces together and said it worked better than he expected. The seam is invisible from the front.
I painted it using Rust-oleum Flat Burnished Amber as a base, which goes on really smooth and leaves a nice metallic finish.
