    Hey there :)
    I'm working on a Mick Thomson (Slipknot) figure, and thought it'll be cool to make a work in progress thread.
    Let's start with the head/mask. It is finished - just needs a couple touches here and there...

    Today I've worked on:
    - The ears/earrings (pretty basic - they'll be covered with hair after all)
    - made the neck a bit biger
    - Started the upper body

    This is already promising. In following updates i would love to see how you use the resin and possibly how you coat and paint these figures. Maybe a sped up video?

    Cool regardless.

    Thank You :)
    It'll be a while until I'll get to the resin and painting part :ugh:

    For now, the base for the boots - Mick will have Army boots :metal:

    I'm currently working on a different figure for a person from Ireland, so Mick isn't my priority right now... but I'll try to work a bit and post an update after the weekend :) :yesway:

    Sick dude! Will you have the guitar finished as his signature red MTM2? That would be sweet!

    Thanks man!
    Mick will have a red jumpsuit (like some of my other Slipknot figures - he'll be from the "Sonisphere 2011" shows :metal: )
    And the guitar will be a white MTM :yesway:

    Cool beans man. The details on those boots like the laces is insane. Ever visit the SSF forum perhaps?

    This is progressing nicely and I'm intrigued by the GoT character. Do you do commissioned work States-side?

    What are you using for your master mold materials? Which kind of resin?

    I love sculpt projects. We just life-cast my wife's head so we can start sculpting up prosthetics for costumes

    Thanks! Hopefully soon :)

    Yeah, maybe not mass, but I can definitely make one more set :yesway:

    Thank You :) No, don't know that forum, but I'll google it for sure.

    Thanks :) the GoT character will be littlefinger! :) I do commissioned work, all over the world, made a few figures to the USA, Canada, Australia, Europe :)

    I use silicone rubber for the mold, IIRC the company is Bluestar from france, 28 ShoreA, and the resin is also a french company - Axson - their "F32" resin.

    Thanks man!
