I started with a 2D design by Jeremy Villines. I converted it into a 3d pattern in cardboard. We used the template to make a plexiglass mold and slush cast the tinted resin in layers. The plexiglass molds for the full crystals were built from 82 pieces! The exhibit is up all year at the Center for Puppetry Arts.
I made 200 crystal shards for the Dark Crystal Ball at the Center for Puppetry Arts tomorrow night. This is the biggest edition of collectibles I’ve made to date, and it was super satisfying to see them in a pile. Get yours with a ticket to the ball at puppet.org
Painting silver/gold accents on this Stardust Dreamer. All those dreamy lumps and bumps. This step takes hours.
I slush cast them with multiple pours of resin and use epoxy clay to reinforce the back.
There’s always a little bit of extra resin left after every pour, so I use the run off for art experiments, like this sparkly strawberry!
