Karkat Vantas horns FINISHED by MaceRider Karkat Vantas horns FINISHED by MaceRider
Well, these are my Karkat Vantas horns, pretty much finished. I will be adding another layer of clear coat lacquer today, but they won't really change in appearance after that, they'll just be tougher and more resistant to damage to the paint.

Materials used:

- Polymer clay
- 3 cans of Montana Gold acrylic paint
- Acrylic clear coat
- Various grades of sandpaper (120, 400 and 800 IIRC)
- 2 standard wood screws
- Headband

Overall time spent, not counting paint drying time and curing: probably about 2 hours.

I would suggest you make them with a crumpled aluminum foil core (along with some sort of top layer than you can smooth out and paint, like papier mache or polymer clay)!

That'll keep them lighter than if you were to make them out of polymer clay.

Be sure to use a twisted wire hanger or something like that as a skeleton to wrap your aluminum foil around, or it'll sag and lose shape.

Nope, the actual headband hurts though, it fits on some pressure points right behind my ears that are very tender.

It's possible to use some lower-profile or rounded screws though. I used what I had at hand and I don't have problems with it, so that's good enough for me.
