    Wow nice paintjob on a cool sculpt. Great work!
    Mind if I ask some questions? How do you get it to shine so much, as if it's wet?
    Is that just varnish or something else?
    And the teeth, what kind of stuff are they made of?

    Thanks guys. Glad you like the paint job, it was my first time painting a sculpture with an airbrush so pretty happy with how it turned out.


    Harmageddon, to get the wet look i sprayed it with Liquitex Hi Gloss Varnish and used a 30 minute epoxy on the eyes, teeth and lips but I think I put the Liquitex on a little too thick so they don't stand out as much as I'd hoped. Next time I'll try spraying a lighter coat or use normal gloss instead of the hi gloss.

    For the teeth i used translucent white Fimo Effect, they got a bit dirty while i was painting the face but i think it looks better than if they where clean.

    Just finished this creature loosely based on H.P Lovecrafts story The Doom That Came to Sarnath.

    Party!

    Awesome Josh, your style is unique and quite refreshing! Are you using a mixed medium base for your sculpts? Any plans or attempts at casting these?

    Finished latex mask

    Thanks QBEIJING

    Thanks CombatMatt, sorry about the late reply. The base for all the sculpts except the masks is just a wire armature bulked out with foil. I'm thinking of making casts of the sculpt I'm working on now, depends how it turns out.

    Finally finished the mask i posted a few months back. Also cast and painted a new version intended to be wearable.

    Piggy Minotaur

    This is a new sculpt I've been working on, still needs some work. I can never decide the best position for horns so decided to make it so they could be repositioned.

    Thanks for looking.

    Almost done, this is just before he went in the oven, I just realised I forgot to redo his ears.

    The piggy got some nice character, and I really like how you handled the skin texture. His teeth feels quite soft. Discolour them a bit and make the darker. Did you paint him before baking or is it something with the clay?

    Thanks AimBiZ glad you like him. He's not painted yet but looks like he might be because before I started I coloured the Sculpey to get it closer to the colour I wanted and added some translucent white Fimo to the clay I used on his face and neck, that's why he's not the same colour all over. I also mixed in some red flocking which you can just see in the last photos, this helps give the clay a more realistic look (I hope). The teeth are translucent white Fimo so they look a little too clean at the moment, I'll dirty them up when I paint him.

    Started this cyclops bust a few days ago, still a lot to do but pretty happy with it so far, roughly half scale in WED clay.

    Cyclops Update

    Small update, realised he was lacking personality so made some changes.

    Finished painting the Cyclops bust. I'm hoping to add hair to him as well but think I'll practice on something else first.
