Ever since I started playing Payday 2 a few months ago, I literally just wanted to craft a clown mask. But, I've decided that I didn't wanted to make a mask just for cosplay purposes but also as an added collection for me as a fan of the game.
So, I took all my time to finally make a durable and "legit-feeling" one by upgrading my arsenal in crafting and diverged a little bit from my usual EVA Foam builds... As for this Rust mask, the process are as follows:
1 and 2:
I usually scratch build everything out of EVA foam just to have a basic template / shape for my mask where I would be putting and sculpting all the details using a standard Air-dry clay that can be bought from a local art supply. I then started on sculpting the major bulging parts (usually the brows and cheek area) and work my way up til' I get all the basic shapes and features of the mask.
3: As I'm already happy on what I have, I then proceeded on slush coating the whole mask inside and outside with a clear cast resin that I bought from a local art shop. For more durability, I also fiberglass resin-ed the inner side of the mask so that the EVA Foam would be hard enough not to get bent / flexed when I put it on a bag or some sort... 4: After the resin cures, I then started on sanding the rough parts down and prime painted the mask after.
5: And because the primer was already white, I didn't need to paint the whole thing with white paint anymore so, I just went on and started putting the basic main colors (Red, Blue and Black)
6: After the paint was dry, I then blackwashed the lower areas of the mask to give it depth and contour using black acrylic paint. This brings out more of the details and sculpted features of the mask. To finish the weathering, I then dry-brushed a metallic silver enamel on the high areas like the nose and the horns to give it a bit of that battle-scarred look.
7: To finish everything up, I then coated the whole mask with gloss finish automotive paint to give it that metallic looking shine.
