Gamzee and Kurloz Horn Tutorial by Catchmewithyourlips Gamzee and Kurloz Horn Tutorial by Catchmewithyourlips
So I have been asked to make a tutorial for Gamzee/Kurloz horns. So I finally made one~
With that I did my best to explain how I made them...though clearly I feel like I have failed at it.
So I'm sorry if I have and that if didn't work or help out.

If you want me to do another tutorial for a different set of horns then go ahead and ask me.
But if you have any questions about them do go ahead and ask and I'll do my best to answer them(I put some of peoples questions below so look them over and see if one of them fits to your question. If not then ask~)

Q: How long they were before you shaped them?
A: For Gamzee rolled out and straight I would say between 12-13 inches.
With that then you can curve them and they shouldn't be too bad.
Kurloz horns are around 15-16 inches straight and are bigger when you curve them.

Q: Does the hot glue and super glue really work?
A: Yes they both work if you use them together. Just use the hot glue first of course and wait a little bit before adding the super glue on. It should make them a bit more stable than just having only hot glue. Like with my Kurloz horns I wore them for Halloween and I was under an umbrella for three parts of the night and they kept getting hit and bumped around. Didn't break off or fall. Though they have fallen a few times but always stayed on the headband. And it's also nice if you put the horns under your wig so you don't see the headband and the glue job, also helps with it being stable as well. And to answer the other question that you posted under this one, drying should be around 4-6 days. The outer part of the horn will dry faster than the middle and you want the middle to dry as well.

Q: Is this enough clay for if I want to have an aluminum base core?
A: I'm not sure actually. I've never done it that way, but I would have extra just in case I would say.

Q: Where did you get the costume for Kurloz?
A: I got it at a Halloween store actually. This isn't the one I have but I couldn't really find it on their website. But this is pretty close to it www.spirithalloween.com/produc…

Q: What do you mean by...Sanded down? How do you do that and what materials do you use?
A: I used just a normal nail file www.amazon.com/Revlon-Compact-… to sand the cracks down so it would be easier to paint them. In my video of painting the Dolorosa horns I started to sand down and paint the Karkat horns. www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXu3b6… you can skip to 8:18 in the video to see just slightly on what I do, I'm sorry if it goes a bit fast when doing so.

Q: So how exactly do you do the blending?
A: What I did was start with the red and orange base colors. Without letting them dry to much I had mixed the red and orange together to a color I like and then began to paint in the middle of the two base colors. I'm sure this may help a little better though it's really fast but you get to see how it is kinda done and all. And the colors are really bright due to my crappy camera www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXu3b6…

Q: Have you ever had the problem were when you leave rounded Model Magic out it gets flat on one side? If so, how do you go about fixing/avoiding that?
A: I have had that problem before and one way to fix that you can roll it on a different side each day as it dries, that should help with not having a flat side. Also once it gets dry enough on the sides you can stand it up on its base and that works as well.

Q: You mentioned putting the horns on under the wig. do you cut the wig in any way or like... how exactly would you go about putting the horns under the wig?
A: You wouldn't need to cut the wig in anyway. If your wig has the little rows of hair all you need to do is carefully push the horns, one on each side of course through the rows and then there you go, your horns are now through your wig and no one will see your headband. But with not cutting the wig you will have hair that is kinda going places where the horns are sticking out, that is an easy fix. Take the strands of hair and just wrap it gently around the base of the horn where it is coming out and you can either pin it to your wig or hairspray it depending on how you would like it to be. I hope this helps a bit with putting the horns under the wig.

Q: I was wondering how well the horns stay on with just glue? I'm worried they'll come off from running around and being crazy :/ how well do they stay on??
A: But with super and hot glue they should be fine for the most part, though I would say try and not be too crazy since you never know with these horns. I've bumped mine around a lot when I was walking around as Kurloz for halloween and they seemed to be fine and are still holding up. But they should be fine for con and running around and all that jazz. Just bring your glue with you to the con just in case haha

hello, just curious do you have any tips for when taking the wig and the horns off? is there a safe or good way to do it, so you might not break or mess up the horns when doing so? I'm just curious/worried about that.

I guess it depends on if you are putting the horns under the wig to have them more secure and everything. If so then just gently take the wig off as you normally do. The horns are in the wig and should be fine. Just don't wave your wig around after taking it off. But if you wish to be more careful then take hold of the horns with one hand and then take the wig off with the other and move your head away slowly from the headband.

Do you think the model magic stuff and this method would work for Tavros horns?

I'm sure, you would just need a lot more model magic and a way to make the horn shape. I wouldn't make it with just model magic alone, but have a structure to put the model magic on.

Well of course xD I've done, not this way, but clay before, and they were too heavy, I'm hoping this way will make that less so.

Yeah it should help in the long run hopefully. They are really light and that is why I like using this clay more so then others.

Here's the horns in full view (kuroyumegd.deviantart.com/art/…)

and on my Gamzee cosplay (kuroyumegd.deviantart.com/art/…)

Went with the separated color as opposed to the blend, but of course none of it would have been possible without your help.
Thanks again for making such an easy and epic tutorial : O D lol

Thanks a bunch! This really helped!

Just one question, I made them and they look fantabulous but whenever I wear them they're too heavy and I have to keep my head straight and stuff, anyway to fix that? :/

Of course uwu I'm glad to help as much as I can.

As for them being heavy what I do is either tuck the ends of the headband into the wig and see how that goes, or what I normally try and do is put the headband and horns under the wig and stick the horns out the top of the wig. The second one for me works best but it all depends on who it is and if you are using a wig or not.

Alright, so is it Model Magic or Model Magic clat? (They're two different products apparently). Also, it's a four ounce package to make a pair of horns, correct?

You could, I haven't tried that yet but I'm sure it would make them stronger. 
But with the way I make my horns they haven't fallen off or broke when I went to a few cons.  But you can always try it and see! 
And if you do, totally tell me how it works~

Haha I was confused for the moment and had to go back to the tutorial to see what shirt I had on and if you could see my pants xD

Sorry about that. But for the shirt for Gamzee is here www.topatoco.com/merchant.mvc?…  They also have other shirts and such.
As for the pants I never made any. I was only Kurloz and he had a bodysuit and purple boxers. 
But from what my friends have done for Gamzee they just took pj pants and painted the circles on the pants.

Ehhh oh gosh I haven't had this question asked and so I never thought of it. 
Okay I just messured the Kurloz horns that I still have here with me and I would say about 1-2 inches in at most. If that doesn't look right then you can go more.
