I still have no idea what happened to black arachnis site or if he still does casting for others. Haven't heard anything about him in a couple years?


Black Arachnis is one of the guys that runs the Casting Cave.

No problem bro! I know how hard it is to find good casting when you need one! More options the better.

Glad you guys are gett'n use out of those! Hmm... any chance you want to be added or do you prefer to not be? If you're setup for it it's extra income. I know us customizers are an impatient lot when it comes to headcasts, LOL :lol: . I'm sure people on here would be glad to send anyone heads who wanted to do this.
Maybe those of us who have or know how to make custom head sculpts could get those together on here. That way we avoid the legal implications. Maybe Captain Coder would add them to a store if they're custom! Just a thought! How convenient would that be though! \:D/

I've got a ton of molds for casting. Both heads & weapons. I'll have you add me to the list once I get some more casting plastic.

I changed this into a sticky topic sense people are always asking about casts this will now be the thread for all there casting questions, info, and links
You'll be lucky if you're one of the few to find someone who can tolerate you.

Does anyone have a tutorial on how to mold and cast heads then how to attach them. I wonder how to attach the casted head to the figure. I can't heat and pop it because the head is not soft plastic right?

I've heated and popped resin heads. Lightly sanding the edges inside the head so its smooth helps. I'll post casting links later today! I've accumulated a veritable cornucopia of tutorials :D
