    Thanks a lot Michael the Arleil sculpt took an insane amount of time to get
    that *70s crappy werewolf mask* look right, but I think it turned out nice ...

    Exactly that is what I can't do due to my job (I'm a pro sculptor in the toy business)
    as selling *pirate copies* of licensed stuff could hurt my reputation and could get my
    work / life / future into serious trouble.
    What I CAN do is sell *one-off* commission sculpts - whatever happens with those
    after the client received the sculpt is out of my hands ...

    I can imagine that, but aside from the problems I could get due to my job, I
    also have a huge time problem - I am so stuffed with work, that I can hardly
    find the time to work on these things off hours. For example just painting a
    Walrus-Man head or an *easy* human head like Piett already takes way over
    an hour, Arleil took about 2 hours to paint and that Boba Fett Helmet calmost
    made me go nuts as it took over 5 hours to paint it ... and the sculpting takes
    days and days and days (in some cases like Vader, Yoda or Arleil it took weeks).

    I couldn't do it myself either, and always had to pay a friend of mine who
    is a very good moldmaker (but sadly he isn't cheap). Then we had a bit of
    a falling out over him always taking forever to finish my stuff, so I decided
    to finally buy some silicone and resin on ebay, watch a couple moldmaking
    tutorials on youtube and learn how to make molds and casts the easy and
    fast way. I started that about a good 2 months ago, and I'm getting better
    and better ... sadly to really make *perfect* casts an *Air-pressure-cabin*
    is needed, and the cheapest good quality setup I could find was about 6000€
    ... ouch ouch ouch ... but since I don't really need to make a lot of molds
    the *cheap* way will do ... btw. it's not that hard in the end - try and error
    worked great for me, as the hardest part with every mold is to find the best
    position for the air-canals and the pouring-hole where you pour the resin into
    the mold.

    That Indy head + hat are my own sculpts and are not
    based on any Hasbro head ...
    here is a pic of a cast of that head in flesh-colored resin ...
