Martinez, Director of Solomon's Requiem
is now working on a new film, and called on the crew of SpatCave Studios
to do all the costumes, props and effects make-up.
First he sent us
some drawings of the main character, "The Dagger". We needed
to make an appliance for the actor that would make him look like this.
Secondly, he wanted
a Duck Man for another scene. So we needed to make an articulate duck
appliance along with feet and wings.
Eric came in and
sculpted up the Dagger appliance, and we fitted it with some clear plastic
lenses we vacc'd just for the project.
Next we needed a
mold of Alberto's head because he would be playing the Duck!
After the typical
abuse we give to all our victims, we had a mold! I blame Tony for the
One plaster bust
later, and we're ready for sculpting!
Here's the first
sculpt of the duck with bill. The bills were sculpted seperately and
made to fit into the main appliance. We figured this would make it a
little easier to talk and make it look more natural.
Look, I'm working!
And here's the mask
without the bills to show the base lines where everything will attach.
The bills all by
The top bill all
cleaned up and ready for molding.
And here are the
bills ready to be covered in silicone.

Finishing up the
front of the mold.
And once the front
half is finished, we can get ready to mold the back.
And here we are starting
the back half of the mold.
The after results
of a plaster fight between Heather and myself. I won by a landlside!
And here's Heather
labelling the mold so we know what it is!
The Duck bills were
cast in Rigid Expanding Foam so they would be light weight, but still
solid. Heather painted them up, and they looked great!
Duck feet! yes, these
are store bought, but we were in a rush!
Duck Wings! Eric
sculpted these out of Medium Density Foam and detailed them with a soldering
iron. Later, Heather painted them up with some Texture Spray and detailed
them with her airbrush. Sadly, we only had 3 days to make these arms,
so they were a bit of a rush job!
And here's the first
foam latex Dagger appliance.
And the first Duck
And here's the Dagger's
weapons of choice! Twin .50 cal Desert Eagles! They'll be modified a
bit before we start using them, but I thought I'd stick a pic of them
