This is one of my ALL TIME FAVOURITE MOVIES!!! These are a few of the prop replicas I created:
The 4 elemental Stones
You don't have to fight Mangalore's, drive a cab, or sing like a Diva to possess these AMAZING 1:1 fifth element stones. Representing EARTH, WIND, FIRE and WATER, these prop stones are lovingly reproduced from the EXACT dimensions of the full sized film-used artifacts. They are cast in durable faux stone resin (extremely strong - will not chip when dropped) and painted in a four-color, 5 stage process. We decided to go for TOP QUALITY and cast them in expensive resin instead of cheap plaster. Each stone is 11" high and textured, pitted and faux-cracked to look like real stone. These are simply marvelous sculptural displays for any movie buff or spiritual enthusiast. Set the four elements around your house for power, karma, and good luck. Each stone is secretly marked with identifying symbols throughout to prevent duplication - so your stones are guaranteed to be one of kind and protected from re-casters.
All four stones were painted in an identical way with identical paints. There are four different layers of separate colors applied in a mottled fashion, giving depth to the texture as precious stones exhibit. They will take on different shades of orange/yellow/tan depending on ambient lighting conditions -which explains the deeper, more vibrant colors of some of these photos vs. the paler effect of others.
Being a huge fan of the Fifth Element, I wanted to create a wall display that pays homage to the brilliant production design. These are the Egyptian wall tablets that detail the story (in glyphs) of the EVIL, and the WEAPON. I sculpted these in foam and sealed them with various techniques, then molded in rtv with a fiberglass jacket. They are cast in urethane resin and firm foam to keep them reasonably weighted so you can hang them from a single nail.
The mangalore bust seen below was one of my first painted prototypes. It used sharper teeth which aren't as accurate as the version now shipping with the kit. But this serves as a nice painted sample.
The life-size MANGALORE bust is cast on a screen used animatronics mask used in filming. The casting is professionally achieved in urethane resin and fiberglass. The eyes are glass and his is detailed with custom sculpted dentals and an ear-com.
The Mangalore mask is another full-scale venture that is resin-cast on a film-used artifact from Bruce Willis' THE FIFTH ELEMENT. It is a very very large casting that is truly stunning. The kit is available either as a FULL around bust or a half bust.
The half-bust includes the head, face and throat, the casting ends at the halfway mark on the ears. The FULL BUST includes the entire head including the back of the head and ears, the throat and the back of the head and back including spinal details.
Both versions come with the main head casting, 2 dental castings, and an ear-com.
The best way to detail the eyes is to insert (from the interior) glass or plastic eyes ( not included).
