How are Gwilliams made?

Mold making is an almost magical process. I mix chemicals, pour them on a thing, and then just like that, I have a 3D stamp that allows me to reproduce the thing in almost any material I want. It’s like photocopying in 3D, except that it has an added level of transformation that alters the original in all sorts of interesting ways. Casting a hollow form in silicone to make a creature mask is very different from making an edition 50 hard resin art toys, both in purpose and experience. My background is in printmaking and photography, so mold making has felt like a natural extension of my early work.

 

I always enjoy reading about other people’s process, so I thought I’d share some of my own. Here’s some information about what went into the creation of the Gwilliam Finger Puppets. You can buy them online for a limited time and have a creepy cutie of your own! The finger puppets and other prizes are helping to raise money to cover production costs for Brian Lonano’s upcoming short, Gwilliam–a gross love story between man and goblin, starring William Tokarsky of “Too Many Cooks”! It’s going to be weird and awesome–check it out and SUPPORT GOBLIN LOVE <3
