Hey Ashley :-)
I searched for some pictures of your subscribed medusa.
If i would do that project, i would sculpt the whole mask over your wifes livecast, separate the snakes and doing molds of them.
Also a core mold from the mask and cast that …
Hey Tanuki :-)
You could make 4 batches with 80g a and 100g b (4 x 180g= 720g) or 320g a and 400g b and you have an overflow of about 20 grams.
I think you can live with that overflow. Its better than headache while throwing away the calculator, …
Hey Erik :-)
I would try to heat up the surface of the mold by using a hairdryer so that the monsterclay becomes soft and maybe the mold will get off easily.
If the sucktion is so great, that the mold cant come off, i would gently drill some 1-2 …
Thank you Chris [=
Edit: The Protrusion on the nose is a cutting tooth, which clamps and cuts the meat between the lower eyeteeth. It has no separated nose, but rather a sense organ like the temperature holes like a snake xD
That looks better and better, Jason ;-)
Keep on practice sculpting. Everytime to the "no fine details- stage" and then the next project. Thats the right way, how you are doing that. Only the primary and secondary forms- getting the right shape is …
you could try the Tim Gore- mixture with simple clear silicone from the hardwarestore, mixed "mega well" with (up to) maybe 500% naphta.
I use that mixture, coloured with simple cheap oilpaints, to paint everything what cant be painted w…
i have tested 1 part silicone from the hardwarestore, thinned with 4-5 parts of "waschbenzin" which should be almost the same like white spirit or naptha.(mixed with a fork, very very good and by adding small amounts of white spirit f…
Welcome Freddy :-)
Nice work :-) Especially the Mummy, really cool ;-)
I can imagine, that its difficult to make those things. Ive never try that and i wont try that in future, because it wouldnt be mine without sculpting and i would drive crazy x…
I like such small Details, which breathe a "crafted" animal or creature life in. So the nose is very convincing and translucent, also the eyes are, too.
Not to speak about the anatomy and furwork,.. I love that leopard :-)
Very great :…
No problem Andrea :-)
Thats a very good class too. My opinion is, that there arent so many basic contents and its more about making miniatures.
If i would create a rank of these two classes, i would say 1. anatomy class, 2. miniature class.
for sculpting human heads, i highly recommend the Jordu Schell class
His class gives a very, very important basic fundament of human head anatomy and proporti…
Hey Hayley :-)
Thats a nice sculpture ;-)
Are you going to cast resin in your mold? I think it should be the best way to make a one- part Silicone mold, when the sculpture isnt really big.
Build up a wooden mold box, which is 4-5 cm away from your…
