The first piece of the mystery sculpt. I will show new parts during the week leading up to the big reveal. Hmmmm, what could this be? Maybe it’s a worm? Maybe it’s the small intestine? This sculpt is done in Sulphur Free Chavant Clay. NSP (Non Sulphurated Plasteline) I still haven’t done the big switch to wax. I work with wax for smaller parts, but haven’t yet made an entire figure. I think I’ll document my first stumbling attempts when I do. The Chavant gives me all the flexibility I need, fast melt time, and when it's cold a nice hard sculpting surface. I can torch and freeze the clay to get really smooth, even glossy surfaces.
Check out The Vinyl Toy Network! This coming weekend Sunday, May 6th 2007 http://vinyltoys.net/ A bunch of cool artists including myself will be there. My new website will be up and running by the end of next week, these things always take longer then expected, it will have new features, bigger galleries and a place to purchase some of my stuff. I just finished a new cool toy sculpt, I will be revealing some sneak peeks next week! San Diego Comic-Con is coming up,a special limited edition SDCC hand made toy will available, I’m making them right now, I’ll keep everyone posted.
