I'm selling headcasts of the Christian Bale head (made from a Movie Masters Dark Knight 'unmasked' Batman figure) if anyones in need of one.

I'm asking $6.00US each + $3.00US for shipping (CanadaPost charges a lot for mailing anywhere).

If you live internationally (outside North America), let me know where and I can get you a custom shipping quote.

I also have other headcasts made (DC Direct Teen Titans Superboy, DC Direct Black Mask - which makes a great Red Skull head, and others)

If you're in need, let me know.

Cheers,
-Blayne

Hey everyone - I've made a casting of the Bale head for another F.R. member.

I'll post some pics of the unpanted casted version, but I'd be charging $6.00US + shipping for the head if anyones interested.

I'm running low on my supplies, so the offer's good "while supplies last".

Cheers,
-Blayne

I want to see it!

noses are a source of problems too for casting. I've had more than a few head needing nose jobs.

PM recieved! As for the video tutorials - I'll try and do one up the next time I cast a piece. The process I use is a one-piece mold, which is great (and a lot less time consuming than a 2-part mold process) for ML scale bits.

Forearms, legs, feet, heads, some weapons, etc. work well with the 1-part process. Anything more complicated (hands with individual fingers, or thin little areas) are best done with a 2-part, as airbubbles will be the bane of your existence.


The bale heads I cast this evening look great though - no flaws. You'll usually get one airpocket under the chin (if you cast the head pointing toward the ground) which is good - there's no detail under the chin, and it can be cut out and filled in with Aves sculpt. When painted, there's no difference visible.

ty very much. I have been wanting to invest on it for awhile but I want the know-how before I get any materials.

my goal really is to cast weapons since I have a limited supply. deadpools and such look a lot better when theyre strapped head to toe any way heh

I'll look online in the mornning and see what I can find for doing casting. Heads aren't too bad to make the mold but can be a pain to cast the resin into at times.

blaynescott, PMed ya!

are there any video tuts on casting? more specifically for figures. I've found casting tuts but they use items like large novelty coins... an example of an ML piece would be a much better example.

I know I saw a quick headcast tut but idk where to find it now

it's disgusting what casting costs, it isn't so bad if you can find large quantities of the stuff and get a bulk rate but I can't find anything in big bottles.

I suppose so. I remember feeling a little weirded-out by the cost of casted parts on most websites until I started casting pieces myself. The materials are expensive and the process time consuming.

For Squeezeplay, I'd suggest he pick up one of the kits that Smoothon makes, either online or at a local hobby store and cast pieces himself.
That way, he can create parts to his specifications.

For casting parts, I've been using a one-piece mold process and it works great (except for hands - those need 2-part molds if they have tiny, individual fingers).

Why was my message quoted in your reply? I was responding to the first message in this thread - the fellow asking about casted versions of the MM Bale chase figure's head.

Un-****ing-believable. I guess everyone is going to completely ignore anything I said besides the number 5000.

I TOLD YOU I DIDN'T TELL THEM TO CAST 5000 THINGS, I TOLD THEM TO CAST ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!! ONE!!!!!!!!!!! NOT 5000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DO YOU UNDERSTAND YET???????????



And that right there is why I am not letting you cast anything of mine on this board.

Waz up all. Thanks for all the complement. don't get to excited though. I just got into this casting thing. I still have kinks to work out.. Though, I can't wait to update the list once I have the final painted versions from Bigdaddy. I got some nice stuff commin in from him!!

I have done what you are talking about. I have acctually casted pieces that boardies have sent me on loan. I have cased them and sent them back. (I have to send out one more Chinkaki!!) If you have something that you wanted to cast, please let me know.

all you have to know is that 5000 diffrent pieces to cast is a unreal number. now if you wanted up to 5 pieces casted (depending on what they are) at a time, then that is a more realistic number. there is a lot of time and money that goes into one piece. take this hand a boardie on the spawn board wanted me to cast.
1.first you have to make the mould box and clay in the piece. (this one needed air vents
2. Pour first half of silicone mixture. (that you will pay for....)wait to cure
3. Prep and pour second half... wait to cure (If its a 2 piece mold)
4.now seperate the 2 and trim. then you are ready for the resin. (that you will pay for)
5.finished piece...

1.
2
3 through 5.

Don't think its easy. there is a lot of work involved. I left out the boring parts.

thanks to Goldenwolf for this beauty...

Lol. It's not all like that. Basically it was just about their wants at the time. I just would message someone who was say, doing Joe stuff, and ask them what they might need. Or I would say "would you like to cast this Hardtop/Payload pistol in exchange for a couple casts" or like, ML8 IM mask, rare TF weapons, or whatever. And nobody ever wanted what I had. I thought it would be worth it for them to sell them but I guess maybe they wanted to buy them at a tag sale for a quarter instead of sending me a couple casts or whatever.

Meh.

I kinda gave up on contacting casters (about this particular type of deal) about 6mo ago after about the 8th time I was refused.

I have about 5,000 items that could be cast (no that is NOT exaggeration :^).

My collection covers TF, Joe, Spawn, Marvel, DC, Zoids, and some misc. other stuff.

If someone wants to contact DR. DeadMan and ask him to --->EMAIL<--- me I'd be happy to talk to him through email.

And yeah, I saw his stuff on here. Good stuff.

What REALLY blows is that I have been contacting people who do casts on a few forums and making them the same offer: I would lend them rare weapons or heads or whatever (I have a pretty extensive collection) in exchange for a cast or two back with the original. So far it's like talking to a brick wall.

I could easily get a cast of mine if not for that fact.

I don't know about it being a rumor anymore (hopefully it is because I LOVE THE MOVIE MASTERS LINE!!!!). It's been a little over a year since the movie came out and still no wave three. They were supposed to come out in the spring of 09 and then this summer, yet still nothing. Anyone who preordered them over at a couple of websites received this email

We have been notified by the manufacturer that we will not be receiving any additional shipments of Batman: The Dark Knight Movie Masters Wave 5 Case, (Item MTP6167A), because they have discontinued production of this item at this point in time. The item has been removed from your order - Entertainment Earth.

Not to mention that anyone selling them online like EE has completely pulled the figures from their ordering page. this sucks but I will probably still get them off of mattycollector as soon as they become available.They should be making an official announcement at San Deigo Con in a couple of days, hopefully the price and when they will be available.
