This project has been sort of a back burner for the last year or so and i've finally gotten around to finishing it up and now I would like to share it with you!
This instructable will touch lightly on sculpting, molding, casting and finishing techniques that were used to produce this prop.
A little background info on this Helm: It is a digital design from the video game Skyrim within the Elder Scrolls series. It is an ancient artifact which once belong to a high king of "Skyrim" and is discovered while playing the game.
"Maw unleashing razor snow, of dragons from the blue brought down, births the walking winter's woe, The High King in his Jagged Crown."
I hope you enjoy!
