shark teeth

Postby packerbacker180 » Wed Oct 17, 2012 10:38 am

Ok, I'm working on a DCUC CnC King Shark where I've sculpted his head atop an Arkillo torso. I'm planning on sanding a canal in the mouth and putting individual teeth inside. But I'm still not certain what material to use for the teeth? I've never attempted anything like this before, so I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or suggestions on the process?

Thanks in adv, here's a WIP pic, the snout is still needs some reshaping, but just wanted to give an idea of the design:

Use the plastic packaging and cut out small triangles. Use a super gel cause super glue doesn't give you enough glue to stick them in place. Use tweezers to put them in place. tooth picks, but they always look liked you used tooth picks for teeth.

I just sculpt them. Shape the ring around the mouth and cut them into teeth with a razor blade when the material is about 4/5 cured. Sharp teeth are easier than human looking ones. This is also because I'm kind of a mess glueing small parts.

I'd sculpt them but I fear they'd break off accientally, so I'm thinking of something sturdier. These are all good ideas, still indecided what direction I'll take.

Happen to have any old Street Shark figures around?
Once I saw this sculpt I immediately thought of Armaggon from the Ninja Turtles comic series published by Archie Comics in the 90's. Look him up, he is a bad-ass; made all kinds of trouble for the future turtles. You should make a custom of him.
