The Asylum is coming up later in the year so I’m trying to get a head start and begin work on my costume earlier than I usually do. This is kind of like version 2.0 of my previous steampunk mask, although it should look quite different. This time round I’m making a mould of the whole thing and casting it in polyurethane resin and fibre glass.  I’m quite looking forward to doing the paint job on this one (and I can always cast another copy and start again if I screw it up!), but I’m not quite there yet ;)

This is a multi media sculpture that I started working on over a year ago.  It’s comprised of typical sculpture materials like super sculpey but I also used fabric and metal and lots of other materials to create all the different elements for this one.  Here’s a quick video of the sculpture itself.

And here’s part one of my build log.  Part 2 should be along in a few weeks.

Here’s a new piece that I put together over the easter weekend recently.  It’s an evil ‘nature spirit’ type creature.  I sculpted this using a combination of Super Sculpey and Cernit polymer clays.  I’d only used Cernit briefly before and didn’t get on with it too well, but I have a better experience with it this time.

Here’s a video looking at sculpting up an initial design for what may ultimately become an animatronic puppet.  I thougth it would be quite nice to have a piece that would have a motion sensor in it that could react when people come close.  Should be quite amusing to have at exhibitions as it suddenly moves and scares people!  That’s the plan anyway. A fair bit to do before getting to that stage.

Here’s something that I’ve posted a few pics of on Instagram recently.  It’s a steampunk version of Tony Starks ‘arc reactor’.

I’ve recently bought a lathe and so I’ve been able to machine the components for this myself which has been great fun.

I’m actually making a few to try and populate my etsy store a little more!

This is designed to be worn on a waist coat and accompany my ‘iron man’ gauntlet.

I’ll have a full build log coming soon on YouTube, but for the time being here’s a video of the gauntlet.

Just a quick mention that Smooth-On and Bentley and Reynolds Advanced Material tweeted about my Steampunk Astronaut, which was nice :)  The final part of my video series should be up soon.
