Before and after paint. The hairs are painted monofilament.
Epoxy clay works best when used in layers so that there’s a solid support to work against. To start, I made a core form with monster clay, covered it with plastic, and sculpted the flower upside down on top. After the clay cured, I used a rotary tool to refine the shape. Next up, I’ll sculpt the stem.
Here’s the process for one of the masks I made for FX’s Atlanta! I built out the core form with paper, tape and plastic. The mask was sculpted from an air whipped epoxy clay on top of the core form, then removed for painting and finishing.
Making the prototype for an edition of finger puppets to promote Brian Lonano’s upcoming short film, Gwilliam–a terrible love story between man and goblin! The edition will be cast in urethane rubber to make them flexible. Follow the link to support the film on indiegogo and get one of these adorable goblins while supplies last! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gwilliam-short-film-by-brian-lonano#/story
Free Form Air epoxy clay tinted with So-Strong pigments. These little barnacles will get paint later ;).
Adding detail to the fro-yo swirl in layers.
Making some progress on the cake cone for a future edition of little fro-yo fellas. I like to apply the epoxy clay in layers, letting it cure between work sessions so that I can work on small areas at a time without damaging the overall piece.
These will be up for sale on etsy in a couple weeks–stay tuned!
I made the crow totem for this awesome new short coming out soon. Check out the trailer!
