Creating The Underskull

 

Back in 2006 I decided we would do a Star Wars theme in the garage and wanted to have a Tusken Raider in the display.  I bought a mask off eBay but did not like the overall look of it so I decided to make one myself.  This slideshow looks at the build process that went into the resin underskull that all of the parts attach to. 

Building the Mask

 

Once the mold was finished I started making masks.  The resin under skull was trimmed, air holes and guide holds for the aluminum pieces were drilled out.  Then the aluminum pieces were attached and  the leather pieces were glued on. Lasty the head bandages when on and then it was done!
