i thought i would upload some pics of my old casts, all of them are plaster solely because it is a lot cheaper than resin or silicone. it is good but obviously you cant really do press molds (this is where you put a dollop of plasticine in your mold and stand on it) and it will always be fragile. if you want to know how i made these check out my earlier post for the basic principles of any mold. so here is some of my earlier work.

stalk body

hand mold

face mold

frankenstein monster head mold

snake monster head top

monster head bottom

stalk wing

as you can see it will pick up a lot of detail and if you make it too thin it will break. if it does break you can glue it back together but more likely than not it will keep on breaking.
on a side note i seem to always make things with feathers or scales, if you have ever made a scaley figure can you please leave a comment as to what you think is the best way of doing it as i put them on individually and it takes forever. i am pretty happy with my feathers though.

always doing something

hello again. whenever I am out I obviously can't sculpt, and i've tried, so I draw on my phone. the app I use is the brilliant sketchbook and I recommend it to anyone as it's basically photoshop light. so here is some of the pics I have drawn whenever i had a moment.

giant mole



burrowing fly

darksiders 2

I hope you like my work and have made you consider this app.

Sad Bob the Builder

I had this idea a while ago when all the stop-motion companies were shutting down or moving, i thought  what would happen to jobless puppets which led to Bob the Bum. a year or two later when i was looking in a charity shop i saw a muck toy and it jogged my memory. toy in hand i looked for bob but i couldn't find one so i sculpted him instead. one small detail that i was quite pleased with was his lighter in his belt. anyway, i had also recently bought a heat gun and a precision screwdriver set, so i dismantled muck, melted him in places, wrecked his tracks and put his mouth on upside-down. i also added eyelids to finish the unhappy look and gave him a new paint job and props. i also added some water effects and plants to make it look like he had been there for a while.
