Gumheads are elemental spirits. They begin as forgotten wads of gum, stuck under tables and chairs. Most bubblegum is ordinary, but every once in a while, through a twist of fate (and a little saliva), old gumwads awaken as mischievous sprites.
Sticky and malleable, they love to steal and hoard tiny objects. They’ve got your DNA in them, but gumheads aren’t always friendly. They have a penchant for chaos when left unattended, but are easily won over with gifts and attention. Under the right circumstances, gumheads are fun companions and can bring good luck and adventure.
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!
I use a sandable primer to fill in any imperfections and get the surface super smooth. I usually use black so I can see where I’ve already been. Done with the wet sanding, ready for a sealer coat, and then off to the mold making stage!
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.
