Foaming the Brawl Magnet

Had some generous help from Tennessee Reid Norton and Rob Ronning this week- resulting in my first foam latex test casting of Brawl Magnet. This was cast over a simple wire armature with no finger or face articulation- a quick run to test the mold. He will serve as a paint test model and a lighting stand-in when complete. It is so fun to see him in positive form again. I've been posing him out a little and it is getting me really excited to animate again. Brawl Magnet is going to have a ton of personality!

Within a couple of weeks I should have the hero casting with the full-on ball and socket armature! I'll try and shoot a little behind the scenes video of the armature setup and foam process.

Hey Ethan,

Is your foaming process as complicated as it looks? I'm thinking of going with paintable silicone caulk using the buildup method.
