I had two thoughts when I checked that out.

a) Reminds me of my ex-wife first thing in the morning....

b) If that starts to talk on it's own? Run like 'ell

Thanks Guys,
Well, I had no art school . Im a dental lab tech for 20 years now. Been making monsters for 30 years.When I saw Star Wars and later horror movies
like The Howling , It changed me, I wanted to do SFX or Makeup FX .There was No internet then. Got books and magazines and started sculpting.
and making masks.
In 1997 I got a phone call from Makeup FX master Dick Smith. He is a Great man and a Good Friend and as helped me so much.
He did makeup for The Godfather, Altered States,The Exorcist and got a Academy Award for the Amadeus .
The new animatronic mod Im building is my dream project,My PC will talk back.
It will have 16 servos or more. Controlled with 2 SSCs. After skin is airbrushed and haired, It will be a hairy space ape.

Wow I love this kind of art. It always makes my throat swell up and gives me a bad feeling. I love this art cause it is something in movies and lookis better than something on paper.

It came out great, It was short in 1 place near the top right vent ,This spot would be cover with hair anyway. 4or 5 little bubbles ,But no away like the 1st one.The whole thing cure ,11hours and the 10th turn on the heat up to 140 ,So 10 hours at 126 to 129.
I think I will keep the batch size and make sure I scrape the bowl clean,Or injected it.
The oven worked Great. Oven cost $150.00 to make.
So, Now what ,I will get all of the mechs done and set eyes place.The eyes are in place but not just right. A couple mm forward or back.And then measure lip springs.
So ,Getting the whole skull thing working and talking ,ears casted too. And run another skin.
