Project: Klytus Mask

Once I finally figured how to add chrome foil to my card models, a whole world of possibilities opened up to me. One project I really wanted to experiment with first was to create a Klytus mask.

General Klytus as he was refereed to, (pictured above), is the henchman of Emperor Ming and head of Ming's secret police force in the movie, Flash Gordon. Released in 1980 this film is a real cult classic that's most noted for it's soundtrack which was composed by and featured Queen. The character of Klytus was played by Peter Wyngard who incidentally played Timanov, a character from the 1963 Doctor Who series, appearing in a four parter entitled, Planet of Fire.

It was really difficult for me to tell if the 'teeth' section of his mask were supposed to be either silver or gold. Because of the reflections cast on his mask through out the movie, it's really hard to tell for sure. In the end I decided to make them silver for my paper version and I'm really please with how this has turned out. All I need to do now is to design a fabric hood to accompany this kit. - it's been a long time since I last used a sewing machine...
