Chemical Kid Reborn!
Here's a few pictures of Mark and Seamus pumping out a batch of foam latex. This is an art in iteself as foam latex is sensitive to atmospheric conditions and can be tricky to mix.
Setting up molds for a couple of their characters....
Shakin' foam base.
Mixing. Yes, it's a lot like cooking.
And here is the result- A nice new casting of The Chemical Kid, complete with the ball and socket armature shown in my earlier post. This batch of foam came out perfect. Nice and flexible as well as durable. My next step is to seam and paint the little guy, and then it's back to the animation with a fresh new character!
Thanks again for all the help Mark, Seamus and Chris- you guys rock!
