Painting Stardust

Adding subtle paint details: thin washes of gold, silver, red, purple, and blue. The new ghost chameleon pigment I’m using looks different depending on how the light hits it. It’s transparent, showing the most dramatic color shifts when layered over black. With just the chameleon paint, the details were hard to see, so I’m also adding lighter areas with tinted metallics to create greater depth.

How to make a planet with a ring system

posted in: process | 0

 The planet itself is a premade wood sphere. I made a pattern for the ring system out of chip board, checking the size and fit against the sphere. After sculpting the rings out of clay, I made a mold and pressure cast translucent purple tinted resin with laser glitter. The cast is stretchy for the first few hours after casting, allowing me to fit it precisely on the planet. The planet was painted with a supershift chameleon pigment that looks different depending on how the light hits it. 

It’s tonight!

It’s tonight! At a towering 15 inches tall, the Mega Galactic Void is on view tonight only at @facetgallery for the Kaiju Art Toy Extravaganza. There’s going to be crazy monster art by 50+ artists along with Japanese snacks, a cash donation bar, and a screening of Godzilla afterwards at the Plaza. Hope to see you there!

The Dark Crystal exhibit is open! I’m excited to share the gigantic crystals I’ve been working on at the Center for Puppetry Arts. This one is installed inside the exhibit. It’s difficult to photograph, but it looks beautiful lit up. It’s human sized!
