Mix as directed and  make thin coats. I also suggest a mouse sander.

I've gotten it fairly smooth, but the edges are being hard to deal with... I'm hoping that my dark paint scheme and shadowing will hide them a bit.

Don't worry dear, I'm talking about the poor rubies 1pc that's been sitting in my room for six years warping away.  James/Lucas said to replace the cheek pieces and glue in a craft ring to help it keep its shape so that's what I've been working on this week.

Still can't find that confounded craft ring though... :(

I used some epoxy putty around the bottom of mine. What did you use for the cheeks? I put a 4sale sign, and it was real thin, so I doubled them by putting a second piece of plastic on em.

I found a box in my dorm room made of that really thick, solid cardboard and used that...we'll see if it holds up, but it seems to be doing fine for now.

As reinforcement. Bondo on the outside, hence my complaining. ><

Aaaah ok, if you on the other hand have an easier time getting it, 3/8" copper or steel pipe works pretty well too if you have pipe benders.

Clean, vod!  Looks good.

Hit the dome and cheeks with a light black wash, and you'll be good to go. :D

Don't forget some scratches with high grit sand paper first to give more of a worn look

Thank you both, I'll get on it!

No idea why the first pic is upside down though....
