Having been seized with the notion that I must build a Tusken costume and cast the metal parts in aluminium, I've been preparing by turning a few pieces on the wood lathe. I've already managed to turn aluminium by hand on the wood lathe, so the next step is to cast some scrap and try making the spikes, tusks and eye stalks. Well, that's the plan anyway. The wood prototypes turned out ok, so here's hoping.I've promised my son-in-law that we'll each cast a set at Christmas, so better get cracking. Wish me luck!
They look very nice.
Would love to do a tusken mask myself at some point... the picture of 3 sandpeople in the "Star Wars Storybook" from my childhood (below) is one of those images burned into my nostalgia circuits.
