Demon Astaroth by Dzhuliia MELNIK
I made this demon in my free time during the war in Ukraine. It had made this before I left. There were many challenges that I learned to deal with. With each Characters I get new experience and the opportunity to develop! I sculpted the head with clay, which I did on my own. Since there was no quality clay like Monster Clay in Ukraine at that time, I took sculptural soft clay and changed the formula, which allowed me to get more clay and at the same time performed the functions of Monster Clay.
For the first time, I molded a mold in such a way that I poured foam-latex into a closed mold through a hole in master model head, I learned this moment at Stan Winston School. I had to sculpt the torso in 1 day, exactly on my birthday, since I hadn’t a lot of time for all, I had to leave my country because of the war, that’s why I was in hurry.So I would devote more time to the sculpture and cut the details separately . But was limited in time and materials.
Molded with fiberglass.
I glued the pantyhose along the entire torso, I mixed the foam-latex in 4 mixers at the same time, since I don’t have a large mixer for 20 liters, I juggled the gelling agent and squeezed it into the mold.
My dad built an oven for me, so now I have the opportunity to bake full-length characters .
