PLEASE READ THIS DESCRIPTION ALONG WITH THE IMAGE, IT'S PART OF THE TUTORIAL!
And FULLVIEW. It's huge, sorry, but very descriptive
We left off, you are to be securing your nose bridge and other pieces.
At this time, you need to start making a piece to support your crown.
This is best to be made out of wood, especially light wood.
Pine is good, poplar is better. Sculpt to fit your forehead.
Next are the THREE MAIN HORNS. The two side howns are somewhat triangular in form, and have a serrated front.
The main horn arcs up like a dorsal fin. These horns are almost 10 inches long when finsihed. Remember, there will be drapes hanging off these!!!
See the pictures, but the must seat on their base wood, not simply be glued on.
Use small nails and then gorilla glue or expoxy, and seat then when sculpted fully. DO ALL THE SCULPTING YOU CAN!
It's hard to do when they are attached.
Keep those side horns even too!
Glue one more little pieces of wood between the horns on the base for security. Srew long large screws down through the wood, to where they poke out into the empty
void abouve your eyes, where you've built out with fiberglass sheeting.
DO NOT FEAR IF IT IS GETTING BULKY, THIS HELMET HAS A HUGE FOREHEAD AREA.
Now rest your crown on your mask. You can drill large srews with washers through the mask (above your eyes outward) into the wooden crown.
Be sure to pre-drill some of these holes, you do not want the wood to split.
In that aread where the srews poke down (above/in front of your eyes) you must fill with something lightweight but securing.
I used house-crack filling foam. Lightweight and permanent.
If this is not an option for you (once you start foaming, you have to use the whole can, and a little goes a long way!!) there is probably simplar foaming glues and fillers to find in crafts stores.
Interesting. I find the design of Sauron's helmet very awesome. But... is the term 'fore-horn' and 'side-horns' correct? Just asking. I mean, I'm writing a novel, and in that story, some creatures have horns similiar to Sauron's but those creatures have it sticking out of there heads for real. I'm searching the web for the terms, because even every single part of a Knight's armour has a term and definition.
