See above: do some reading and decide what you want to make, then you will know what questions to ask.

I'll reveal my secrets for stage blood:
Ketchup, red food coloring, corn syrup, and latex bladders and hoses for creating that impressive arterial spray. If you really heal on it you can reach people in the 3rd row!

Time for me to dig back in at the shop and try to get some things made. It sucks when artists lose their equipment.

For much of it I would advocate using resin, 2 part epoxy, and a dremel.
Basically I'm suggesting you do thin layers, then use the dremel with an engraving bit to refine the forming work.
Believe it or not I think this is a good choice for a first project in 3d. I love taking on stuff I have no idea how to do.

The reason I'm suggesting you do layers over casting the whole thing is that doing a detailed mold for resins and plastics is even MORE difficult.

Oh, and you can tint fiberglas resin (just the resin mind you, not the stuff with fibers in it, most auto body shops carry it).
Take a look at the following website for ideas for what you can use as a colorant for the resin:

Wonderful work!

I've got a spare helmet and one in need of some decoration, if you're willing to make a trade send me a PM.

Melt it, allow the dust to settle out and pour off the top.

The important thing for fixing this is to fill in the hole with some sort of adhesive or another to hold the new eye hook in place.
