It was all looking a bit green though right? Like a bit too "Jedi". Well, I thought so anyway. So I started thinking about alternate colours.
The red skinned "Sith Tattoo" style should have been the direction I went for initially, but my wife somehow convinced me that it was a bit 'cliche', so I avoided it.... but I ended up back with it. I had a look at so many of the EU Sith that had the red and black colour scheme, and of course it was only right.
Inspired by Other "Sith Tattooed" Star Wars characters. Darth Maul:

Working on the tendrils is a slow process.... WIP17 by Stew750, on Flickr

Next up , came the tendril attaching. Another slow process. WIP19 by Stew750, on Flickr WIP20 by Stew750, on Flickr Finally I was able to see if I could actually remove the mask from the head cast. It came of with a bit of a struggle and the part I most worried about was the eyes popping out(poundland sunglasses lenses :lol!: ). The eyes stayed in and I was finally able to wear it:

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?
