Casey Jones Mask

I have always loved the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles , way back before any movies or cartoons Started I was hooked on the comics.  MY favorite character besides Donatello was Casey Jones and I have always wanted a mask replica. My friend Alan made the Pepakura mask first for me, he always does really good pep work, and this made my job so much easier! The Pep model  had no name to give credit to, and I cannot find who the creator is . I have had the file on my computer for quite a while.

  I coated it on the outside with polyester resin. This sealed it and helped it keep its shape for the next steps.

I slushed the inside with Smoothcast 321 urethane resin to give it some thickness to work with, then I took a sander with 80 grit paper and knocked down the high spots.

With just a little bit of body filler and spot putty, it took shape fairly easily. I wet sanded it to 1,000 grit before painting it  with white enamel.

 All that is left is the leather straps to hold it on and a golf bag full of blunt objects ! Easy build !
