I recently went along to support my fiance at The Great British Tattoo show and a few of my zombie sculptures ended up invading her stand ;)  It’s quite a large event and so there was plenty of interest in them over the weekend.

Here’s the piece she did on the saturday.  Her tattoo page is here.

The preceding few weeks saw me painting up a few casts, I even managed to sell one (wahoo!).  I’ll be putting the rest up on my etsy store shortly.

Here’s the next video in the zombie series, this time looking at making the mould.

I spent last weekend trying my hand at pressure casting for the first time.  It went pretty well and I’ve produced five casts of my zombie sculpture.  I’m currently in the process of painting them as you can see below.

If you’ve not heard of this process before, it involves putting your mould and casting material into a pressure chamber and letting it cure under pressure. This has the effect of squashing down any air bubbles in the cast into tiny pin pricks and gives you a virtually flawless cast.  I had very few teething problems with this and got some very good results very quickly.

This is quite exciting as a barrier to producing good quality casts has always been air bubbles in the mould.  Now that I’ve got that sorted I can produce accurate copies of my sculptures that are good enough quality to sell, so I plan to set up an etsy shop selling some sculptures in the near future.

Anyway, I’ll be covering all this in detail on my youtube channel so keep an eye out for that.

Been a little quiet as I’ve been moving house but I’m starting working on projects once more and here’s my latest, a zombie sculpted in Monster Clay!

I’ve also recently invested in a pressure chamber and compressor and so I’ll be able to tackle producing casts of my work in a more professional way.  Stay tuned for interesting, and hopefully not explosive, experiments with dangerous equipment ;)
