SoloRoboto Industries  Custom and replica prop maker. I make the things you see here. To buy kits or commission me, go to my website!

Add this to the list of problems the @tombraider gets to deal with...
@saylum as Lara Croft at #E32018

Because who doesn't enjoy some lovely pastels?
.
Using white urethane based primer so I tinted it with some @smoothon So-Strong pigments to get that much closer to final colors.
.
Hawkman will be painted in straight up, classic 60s comic-book colors.. Which isn't my usual style, so a fun challenge!

So the bow I made for @squareenix and Shadow of the @tombraider isn't on the floor with the amazing cosplayers... It's under glass in the booth! That's an honor I never thought I'd have.

Hawkman's back!
.
In classic comic-book fashion, the shape of the helmet makes it impossible to actually put ON a human head without getting creative.
.
My solution was to split the entire face off using the same fiberglass-and-magnet system I use on Star-Lord helmets and Winter Soldier arms.

Finally got the finished photos of the @tombraider bows I made for @squareenix and #shadowofthetombraider !
.
These are a handful of my favorites.
.
This thing is almost 4 1/2 feet long so it's hard to get it all in frame without losing the detail.
.
Base was 3D printed from in-game elements before adding wood grain / carving texture by hand. Molded in @smoothon silicone and cast in flexible urethane with fiberglass rods for reinforcement, then hand painted. All work done by me.

I’m SUPER stoked to be judging the Prop Contest at Maker Faire tomorrow!

Faux wood grain!
.
This was a really fun challenge. I'd never attempted top make plastic look like wood using nothing but paint before, but once I got a feel for it is say it came out pretty great!
.
Paint want finalized at this point - just the"wood" texture. My best guess based off the @tombraider concept art from @squareenix and the setting is that the bow is supposed to be made of Katalox, aka Royal Mayan Mahogany.

Casts of the @tombraider bows came out impressively clean considering the speed at which I had to mold and produce them - aside from removing the flashing and doing some minor touchup along the seam lines they needed almost no work!
.
Cast in @smoothon Smooth Cast 60D, with brown So Strong UVO pigment and fiberglass rod inserts.

Here's a quick timelapse of the process of casting the @tombraider bow I made for @squareenix !

Resin is @smoothon Smooth-Cast 60D, tinted brown. .

Primer time!⠀
.⠀
The @Tombraider bow parts were sprayed with Transtar 2k Urethane clear. ⠀
.⠀
Transtar is a super common brand here in California, but I've had really good experiences with it in both standard and high-build varieties.⠀
