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.

Here’s the second part of my ‘Making a Monster’ video.  It covers making a mould using a vacuum chamber, casting and painting.

And here’s part 1 as I just realised I forgot to post it! ;)

A new video looking at making my Tywin Lannister sculpture.

I went along to the opening night of the exhibition.  There’re some great pieces there, mostly paintings.  I’ve included some in the video.  It was nice to be the only sculpture ;)

I’ve recently finished a sculpture of Charles Dance as Tywin Lannister from Game of Thrones. This is part of an exhibition which is taking place next week.  More here.

This is a ‘mixed media’ piece, mostly sculpted in super sculpey but with resin, leather, fabric and foam elements too.  I’ll be doing a full build log for the piece on my YouTube channel, but for the meantime – have some pictures.

So I’m pleased to say I’ve finally finished my bat creature.  Here’s a painted cast.  The final part of my video series charting the creation of this piece is also available below.

If you’re interested, these can be had from my etsy store.

So here’s the first cast of my Bat Creature bust.  I detail the process of making the mould and sculpting the bust in this video series.

I’m quite relieved this has all worked out.  This is probably the largest and most complicated mould I’ve made so there was alot that could’ve gone wrong.  As you can see I’ve cast it in two colours as I plan to paint the base stone coloured and the creature with flesh tones.

I’ll be detailing all this in the last part of the video series.
