Had my first successful run with latex casting these last few days. Still not 100% satisfied with the finished look, but I've been able to consult a friend about the process I've been using, and plan to tweak it so that I get a more polished appearance.
I'm planning to gauge if the process + materials used will be worth me making multiple sets of the soon to be revealed product for costume use. If so, I plan on selling them on the side at a competitive price for everyone. We'll see!
