Creating Lightweight Theatrical Costume Armor


Andreas Moravec is a moldmaker and makeup artist based in Austria. In this tutorial, Andreas demonstrates a technique for creating '300' style theatrical armor using Rebound™ 25 silicone and Smooth Cast® resins.

Using Smooth Cast® 325 pigmented with So-Strong® black tint produces a very lightweight, yet impact resistant piece.
