How to build your own Deadmau5 mouse head helmet!
How to make a Deadmau5 Christmas ornament that lights up!
I used the dremmel to go back around the mouth and make small adjustments making sure to be careful. As far as the eyes go, I layed a piece of 320 grit sandpaper on the ground and sanded away the rough edges.
I actually used this as my primary source for the project. Me and my friend are making a pvc pipe marimba, a daftpunk helmet with a working display and my part of the project was a deadmau5 helmet as well as assisting in the pvc pipe marimba. We are doing this project as apart of an engineering class at our school. My main recomendations are to find the right type of foam. I spray painted mine and the petroleum reacts with petroleum based insulation foam, either way, I am pleased with the results and putting my final touches on the helmet such as the mouth and rgbs along the mouth.
You would need to apply some material to make a smooth finish. That is why polycarbonate or acrylic globes are so popular with this because they already have such a smooth surface and are easy to dremel. I smoothed alot of my project out with the mouth and the ears using silicon, but other products such as fiberglass resin is a popular product. With fiberglass resin, be sure to use gloves and to be outside(I had a terrible experience with that haha).
I bought the spray paint cans at Home Depot. Unfortunately, it won't have that smooth finish on paper mache. I bought a plastic globe through Amazon. It looks much better on it. I was suppose to do a Megaman one but never had the time to finish it. Hope that helps. - Funky JL
Hi, that's an awesome mau5head! Can you tell me how you got that smooth metallic finish? Is it possible on a globe made of paper mache? thanks! - AshwinN3
