Comparing this badger claw to a real one : [link]

15th Jan 2012 Making my badger claw; a description of how I did it......:woohoo:

GROAN. The title should include 'glove 'in the picture, I havn't got time to change it..........:slow:

Also don't remove the glove for the 1st time without being totally sure it is 'cured' or dry........:slyfart:

how good can you move your hand? can you open it and close it?

Yep! One could close the hand and hold something like a sword! See here : melesmeles-faber.deviantart.co…     ;)

okey one quiestion how did you take of your arm out of the latex later? O.O
if used the vaseline directly to your skin and used latex onto it how do you remove your arm?

One carefully peels it off! :)

I used vaseline only where my arms were hairy, if you shave all the hair off your arms and hands you won't need vaseline at all..... Once it is dry the latex will just peel off the skin! But one has to do it carefully in order to not stretch the latex...

No problem! :) Remember though that one can't get really good 'detail' into the latex doing it this sort of way.... For that one needs to model plasticine, make a mould, and cast the latex into it! ;)

I've never used it ! I looked it up quickly, seems to be powerful stuff, and maybe not a good idea to put on the skin......
