    Ok so although I have my plate super full , and had problems with supermans arms , and needed to remold them , plus putting in some work off and on on yoda I figured I would at least start on this guy or I would never get to him, this is a tony cipriano sculpt , that I liked so much due to the likeness of Ceaser , I just don't care for the rough sculpt as many tend to sculpt that way , but anyway I figur if I'm going to have him in my collection it has to be silicone , so with the permission from tony (thanks tony) I will be making mine in silicone . Once he is in clay I will smooth out the wrinkles and add whatever needs added , and yes process will be you tubed

    Wowwww very exciting project!
    Its 1/3 scale if i remember...
    Will you do a full statue or just a silicon bust?
    Hope its a full statue because the most difficult is the head imo...

    Damn! Looking forward to see the progress on this. Hopefully the details of the sculpt transfers well to silicon.

    Thanks guys , I would have loved a full statue , if it were a true 1/3 scale , but althogh Tony's work like the universal monsters and the Conan busts state 1/3 scale it really is between 1/3 and 1/2 imo, they are huge compared to the cm heads which you will see in video when I compare it to Arnold so this would be a big statue so I would have to settle for the bust

    Yes Lars . I sprayed the original bust with mold release as I used a urethane rubber to mold it as that would have stuck to it and impossible to take off, it would have bonded to the resin. Silicone would have not, but I found that by using urethane when I pour in the silicone after spraying that as well , it comes out esier , then I add plasters bandages to make a hard shell which will support the flimsy rubber , then I melt the chocolate , :lol: Monster clay and pour it in the mold and the clay copy is the result. I will be shaving off all the hair and leaving a bald ceaser , will also go in and fill in the eyes and go over the wrinkles a bit deeper but will smooth them out , once this is done , I will make a two part mold with the same urethane rubber , if I make it thick enough I will not need to do the plastered bandages , but we will see , once the second mold is done I will mix color to silicone and pour , creating a bald silicone copy
