I received a couple of emails requesting more detail, and a closer peek at the tools that were being used in the demo.
The wire tools that are used to plane out the rough spots. And the cable rakes, small and large. I have made a few little custom wire rakes from guitar string.
The same techniques work on the small and large sculpts. This big guy I’m working on was for a Pizza Hut commercial a few years ago with Miss Piggy and a talking Mount Rushmore. I sculpted the Teddy Roosevelt head. Basically using the large cable rake and the same types of tools in a larger scale.
An other large-scale piece was the Borg outfits for the Star Trek Borg Invasion 4-D at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Same deal just bigger, lots of detail lots of precise smooth contours. A combo of big tools for the armor and little tools for the details. A combo of big tools for the armor and little tools for the details. Always take the time to experiment use the tools that feel most comfortable to you.
