I’ve just recently gotten back into sculpting, and am working on a few projects in polymer clays, and even more recently trying out some modelling and tooling waxes. Here are a few examples of my recent work. Click for a larger image.
Work in progress – Dr. Horrible
It’s roughly in 1/12 scale so if the witch was stood, she’d be about 6″ tall, and is about 5 1/2″ tall sitting from boot tip to the top of the hat, present for my wife.
Wolverine and Spider-man busts
Master sculpt for chocolate lollipops for my wedding.
Figures are in 1/12th scale.
Starting with my CG character, I first made a polymer clay model, which I then took a silicone mold of and cast several copies in a lightweight resin. The models are primed but not yet painted.
Using an unused earlier concept design for the main character in ‘Ice-Blade Penguin 2’, I created a simple penguin model in polymer clay and again made a silicone mold and cast several copies to allow me to customize the blanks as individual gifts.
I made a couple of ‘Rorschach Penguins’ gave one to Dave Gibbons to keep, and he was more than happy to sign the other one for me. Similarly I made a ‘Hell Penguin’ custom for Mike Mignola and got him to sign one for me too.
