    awesome post!! sweet figure...and cant wait to see the rest of the WOW piece. is that WED clay for him?

    How do you go about molding accessories and things of that nature...for instance the weapon in your figures hand...would you mold it separately, and leave room to wiggle it in the hands or would you mold the hand and weapon together?..( i doubt the latter one, but you're the master, and i your pupil)
    Thanks for your wonderful work.

    Salute,
    Snake

    thanks snake, the second piece is super sculpey firm the first figure is super sculpey firm with majic sculpt epoxy putty for the clothing and accesories.as for the hand I will place a dowel about the same diamiter of the weapon shaft he will be handling in his had that can be removed after the bake, I then will have a hand that looks like it is holding an invisible weapon and insert the weapon into his hand later . It really depends on the sculpt and how it should be molded each piece is different and will require an individual aproach to the mold aspect. Some I would mold in the hand and some seperate.in the first picture I set his weapon in laying across his thigh I did this for three reasons one it adds stability to this light weapon , it allows me to mold it with the rest of the body. The third you don't see to many sculptures with swords sticking out its a safety hazard.

    A thousand thanks upon you, for your insight.
    I got a second look at your sculpture...just mind blowing! i particularly enjoy your depth and level of detail..the armor, and your anatomical subtleness is unrivaled.

    Hi, first of all let me tell you this is the best "how to do it" example I've seen around. I've been wanting to do a WOW toon and since I ain't got much experience this post was the most elucidative regarding the full "kit Making" process, you're the MAN!

    With this in mind I Would like to make you a couple os questions :

    1 - There's a picture regarding the final mold making phase where you say "before it cures smooth with water", you are refering to the rubber, right?

    2 - In your head merchant piece and later on in your WOW char, you are using a grey material, is it the Super Sculpey Firm?

    That's about it, once again AWESOME job mate

    Hi Drenji,
    I failed to get good pics of that final process on the mold. forgive me I can see how that would be confusing . two answer question
    # 1 it is the hydrocal ( industrial plaster)shell as it thickens keep smoothing and shaping . it will get pasty so keep a bucket of water handy . it will solidify quickly and get pretty hot in the last few minuts .
    #2 yep , I love that stuff (super sculpey firm) as long as its fresh.
    thanks again for reading through this ,
    happy holidays!

    Thanks for the quick anwers, you basically use the "Hydrocal" to give the mold a firm structure to hold on right?

    Cheers, a great 2008 for all the ppl!!!

    I love running through this thread. It's not only informative, it's also a great collection of inspiring work. I've looked over your casting instructions numerous times, but the real treat is getting a glimpse into your workshop and seeing the sculpts in-process.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the continued progress with the WoW sculpt, and your future creations.

    I must say as of late I've been wanting to cast sculpts. Not only have I been getting into garage kits, but I also think it would be better to cast teeth and small, fragile pieces for sculpts and busts, make the sockets, and then glue them in after curing. I am quite nervous as I am afraid I will attempt to cast a piece that is too large or be unable to judge where to sever the model, especially a solid chunk like a bust.

    Soon I will try this, when I have a little more space in my garage. Hopefully i will have results of success to report.

    thanks favios , serpian , favios , I actually used a press on most of the chain but that only gets 1/2 the detail still a crapload of work. I have since cleaned him up with a 90% alcohol 10% terpenoid mix . A very good mix if you don't want to overwhelm the clay.I use super sculpey firm but Im sure the same result could be had using plain sculpey .
    Have a nice day!!!
    sorry had to pull those head merchant pics , the magazine is ot out yet .I will re post next week as soon as it goes out sorry about that.

    Thanks monkey, Lilalex,im pretty pleased about that , its a great mag!the guy that painted the piece is sculptor painter mark van tine. I was blown away buy his take on it , bieng an original work there was no set color scheme so he changed the whole dinamic of the piece and made it better then I had planned it. anyway here is some shots of it finished .
