I recently attended the annual Steampunks in Space event at the National Space Centre in Leicester.  I’ve exhibited my sculptures there before but this time round I also ceated a piece specifically for the event.  They ran a ‘space race’ exhibition for sculptures along a steampunk/space theme, so this is my piece.  It’s a silicon rubber sculpture built over a shop mannequin and then dressed in various pieces of steampunk kit that I’ve built over the years.

I’ll have a complete build log on this on youtube channel soon, but for the time being here’s a quick video from the event.

And here’re some more pics of the piece! :)

Behold!  A video of my Demogorgon sculpture from  Stranger Things  :)

I’ve done so many complicated sculptures recently I just wanted to do a quick sculpture, no moulds, no pressure chambers anything like that.

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.
