Fishbones Resin Figure

A shallow mold such as this one makes it almost impossible to mess up. Pulling really smooth bubble-free casts means less work before I can paint. He'll be available in two different versions. Patina, and a multicolored metal/wood combination.

Here he is, the final Fishbones! About 3.5" in length, with plans for a 10" (or so) wall plaque in the near future. Resin figure coming soon!

Fish Bones Sculpt - In Progress

Well this is fun, I love seeing the process laid out like this! I already get to see it every step of the way, but you know what I mean. I don't usually sketch and color a concept before sculpting anymore, but it's made the process go much quicker. I should start doing this from now on so I can share the concept to completion process with the 7 people who may be interested. :)
Sculpting isn't yet complete but I'll be finishing shortly and will then begin molding this little guy!

Custom Wedding Gift

These two customs stand at 4.5", with a blank Munny as the base to sculpt on. I first cut the "ears" off of the Munny, then cover the openings with a bendable mesh to keep clay from falling inside. I sanded the Munny to allow the clay to adhere to the surface. It's too slick otherwise, and will make it more difficult to sculpt on top of. This was the first time I sculpted, sanded and baked sculpey in layers. If it gets too thick it'll never really harden completely in the oven. Layering ensures a nice tough figure in the end.
