I just Love the feel of it

375 grams HIGH SOLIDS FOAM BASE
75 grams MICRO-CELLULAR FOAMING AGENT™ 450 grams
37 grams RAPID CURE™ CURING AGENT 487 grams

ROOM SCHEDULE (70-74° F) (43%)15-1/2 minutes Total Time
1. (mixing) Start at lowest speed to mix ingredients, slowly (over the course of 1 minute) increase to speed 12
2. (whipping) FROTH at speed 12 for 5 minutes
3.(medium refine) speed 4 for 4 minutes
4.(ultra-refining) speed 2 for 4 minutes adding 2 grams ammonia
5. Add GELLING AGENT, 15sec. then color 15sec
6. Turn bowl backwards by hand to mix gel for 30 sec , then
Let mixer run until 15-1/2 minutes have elapsed. OFF
Quick ,I poured into the mold , Put the die mold in place .
Foam gelled in 20 sec.
Cooked 11 hours at 125 deg.
2in.around the edge of the mask Did not cure.Because that is the closest to the walls of the oven.
Some bubbles,I think because it started to gel some as it pour into mold.

The oven 8 , 8"x8"x8" cinder blocks

1 floor vent
4 door hinges
1 ,50'x 2'foil insulation
1 computer fan
1 single burner
1, 18"x18" 3/8 expanded medal
1.The room should have been colder,Or added more ammonia
2. Bigger oven ,I used 2'x2' plywood,Should used 3'x3'
3. Use flow enhaner
4.Foam Batch 2.0 ,not 2.5
6 CHANGE FOAM MIX SCHEDULE
Now building a bigger oven 3'x3'x3'
WOW!!! JUST WOW!! it's really awesome!! I loved, thanks to share it!
wow, that looks awesome, i cant wait to see the next version of the face from the bigger oven.
Very cool project. Awesome skills.
awsome, keep up the good work
Nice..can't wait to see the end reulst..
Well,Here is the BIGGER OVEN.
Should i be scared that its big enough to cook a human.. or scared that you showed us that...
Anyways, looking forward to the new head. Hope no bubbles appear this time.
Well,Im running foam today.
337 gms. base
67 grams foaming agent
33 grams curing agent
15 flow enhancer
24 grams gelling agent
4 grams ammonia
73 degrees 40%
1. Speed #1 - 1 minute (to blend all components)
2. Speed #10 - 3 minutes : blend all
3. Speed #3 - 4 minutes : refine
4. Speed #1 - 30 seconds :refine
5. Speed #1 - 30 seconds : ADD GELLING AGENT
6. Speed #1 - 30 seconds : Backturn the bowl
gelled 14 mins
It came 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.
I love MonsterMakers Foam.

This thing's face reminds me of the morlock in the new movie time machine, did you get the idea from there?
Great work btw, you should work at Lucas film or for that other bearded guy lolll.
I changed the bite ,In order to lower the foam lips before I had lip spring.Raising the teeth up and back some.
