Tom Banwell's ongoing "Defender" helmet project is nearing completion . It's not only beautiful to look at, but his posts detailing it's construction are an education in creative materials use and craftsmanship.
I'm a big believer in the DIY ethos of sharing information and techniques, as opposed to the tendency some artists have of keeping things "secret". Mr. Banwell's efforts to show even the smallest details of his works are both a credit to his artistry and a valuable resource. I know I'm never going to create a mask at his level, but from his pointers and commentary I've picked up enough confidence to start planning my first foray into resin casting.
