Pyramid Head Smock progression by Laurentea Pyramid Head Smock progression by Laurentea
Smock made for :iconzacloudseth:

First time trying to do this I had used the smock :iconzacloudseth: had made but the type of fabric was not agreeing with the distressing so it was scrapped and I've made him a new one. I still want a do a bit more to the smock/apron but for now I'm content until I bring my air brush back home.

Picture 1: Started with a white base fabric. This was after I did a base dye using Dylon's coffee and havana brown. I'd usually use tea because I'm cheap but turns out I had these lying around.

Picture 2: After stitching, texture and colour was done. Technically he doesn't really have stiching but it looks cool so pfffttt. Center picture best shows the actual colour of it. I'm kind of sad I SMOTHERED this in latex and you can't really see it but man does it look creepy and skin like in person.

Picture 3: Close up. I was hoping more of the texture wuld show through but it got blasted out by the flash. What can you do.

Picture of Kyle's pyramid head done!

Thank you for adding this up.  I was able to make my own thanks to it!  The latex works wonders on making the skin look.

Here's my Pyramid Head I made using this breakdown:  darkerperspective.devia…

can you do a full out tutorial of this? PLEASE??? this technique sounds GREAT and just what i need for my own PH cosplay.
so...eheh a few questions. Was the materiel just your basic white cotton cloth or muslin you can get at any Joan Fabrics?
How much latex did you use?
is pre-dying the materiel mandatory?
could you use acrylic stain as a sort of dye?
and how easily did the latex take to the materiel and the paint over?

Oh I did this years ago but I can try to answer all that. The material from what I can remember was just a regular cotton canvas I had laying around. Anything can work as long as it is a natural fabric and will take to fabric dyes. I personally like pre-dying better. It gives you more of a base colour to build upon and looks more natural. Trying to paint a large space all at once can be tricky and pre-dying can give you a starting point. That's me personally but go ahead and try the acrylic stain I've never used it before, I don't see why it wouldn't work. The latex I mainly used over the stitched areas or as it dried up used the stringy chunky bits and slapped them on the fabric. Once latex touches fabric it is on there for good. You may be able to take off a bit but it will always leave a mark so be careful of that. I used quite a bit from my makeup kit but it's all up to you how ever much you want to use. Be sure to dust some baby powder or a makeup powder over the latex after it dries, then if you fold the fabric it won't stick to itself.

that's all you did? Wow, by the looks of picture 2 i thought you layered the cloth with the latex. if you didn't all you used is dye to make it look so much like real skin? Holy shiz!

If anything I may have done a really thin layer over random areas but not over everything. Painting can do a lot. Ooo I also remember using a mixture I made for my nurse dresses for texture using stuff from the kitchen, like tea and cinnamon. Anything with colour really

Did you just use a paintbrush to add the black texture or was there some magical technique you used?

I don't remember sprcifics but 'm going to say a ratty old paintbrush and paint did that.
