Painting Stardust

posted in: process | 0

Adding subtle paint details: thin washes of gold, silver, red, purple, and blue. The new ghost chameleon pigment I’m using looks different depending on how the light hits it. It’s transparent, showing the most dramatic color shifts when layered over black. With just the chameleon paint, the details were hard to see, so I’m also adding lighter areas with tinted metallics to create greater depth.

How to make a planet with a ring system

posted in: process | 0

 The planet itself is a premade wood sphere. I made a pattern for the ring system out of chip board, checking the size and fit against the sphere. After sculpting the rings out of clay, I made a mold and pressure cast translucent purple tinted resin with laser glitter. The cast is stretchy for the first few hours after casting, allowing me to fit it precisely on the planet. The planet was painted with a supershift chameleon pigment that looks different depending on how the light hits it.

Mask Process

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.
