Mystique’s Skull Belt
Mystique’s belt full of skulls was a bit of a challenge, because at the time, I’d never done any sculpting and casting at all, before! So this was actually one of my very first sculpts ever.
There are about 14 skulls on Mystique’s belt. Each one has to be cast up individually, one at a time. Once they’re all made, I hit them with a light sanding on the back to smooth them out a bit. Then painted them gold with spraypaint.
The final step is the blackwash, where I rub black paint into all the cracks and crevices to make them look dirty and worn. It’s such an important step, I definitely recommend looking up guides to blackwashing for any armor or prop you make!
