Some of the remaining art from Journey to Terra Flora will be in the second room at Galeria Regina through October 26th. A new show, “The Mind’s Eye,” opens tonight, 5-9pm, featuring artists Kate Silvis, Sam Wethern, and Cameron Wethern. I’m looking forward to seeing what they’ve made. Hope to see you there!

Thanks to everyone for sharing another great night at Galeria Regina!

Casting a Woolly Caterpillar

This is a split mold, which means I poured it as a single block and cut it open for casting. Check out the below picture to see the original sculpt set up for molding. I put vents in the middle to prevent air bubbles. The blocks beneath the caterpillar are reservoirs to make pouring the resin easier.

Get your own cutie this Saturday at Galeria Regina, 5-9pm.

Cutting teeth for the Golden Toothed Beauty

They’re made out of L200, a closed-cell foam used in puppet and costume fabrication. It’s heat formable, can be carved/ sanded, and it’s easy to paint. I used this foam for most of the flower, finishing the surface with neoprene and acrylics to give it a resilient rubbery skin.

There’ll be an encore reception at Galeria Regina August 17th 5-9pm if you missed seeing this toothy beast the first time around.

Thanks so much to everyone who came out last night!

Demolding

I’ll have a fresh batch of Gumheads in the upcoming show. This will be the last drop of Dubble Bubble and Very Berry Gumheads for the foreseeable future, so save the date if you want to score one! July 13th at Galleria Regina. A Gumhead getting its arms. These little guys are double cast, which is just what it sounds like. After casting and painting the core, I fit it into a second mold to cast the translucent layer.

Sneak peak

Sneak peak at some blossoms waiting patiently for the art show. I can’t wait to take some good pictures of these!  One of my favorite things about mold making getting to experiment with different looks on one sculpture.  Each flower is a little different and completely one of a kind.These and more will be at Journey to Terra Flora, opening July 13th at Galeria Regina. Hope to see you there!
