Printing / Building / Painting
The mask prints in two parts, and I printed it on a Makerbot Replicator 5G at .2mm, 5 shells, with raft and support enabled.
After the two parts print out, the support is very easy and straight-forward to remove.
This was my first experiment using Bondo as a sandable joiner material, and it worked amazingly well. The seam is completely invisible from the front, and it looks like a one-piece print. I painted it using Rust-oleum Flat Burnished Amber as a base, which goes on really smooth and leaves a nice metallic finish.
I’m a notoriously bad painter, but I’m still proud of the detail on this one! Immortan Joe uses a pretty complex re-breather system, but this mask has all of technically functional components built into it.
