Working on new Dog Head, update.

I am very  happy with the silicone mold so far, I have been able to make seven heads. Next up…  painting. A closed mold is easier to spin around, learned that the hard/messy way. I wrapped a piece of cling wrap around a scrap of cardboard, silicone and cling wrap make a decent seal. Yes that is “pink lacy” elastic, it’s what I had on hand. I have a big roll of it, don’t ask. Now for some trimming and sanding, then Paint! super excited!!!!  

Working on new Dog Head, update.

Starting the mold (mould) from the sculpture. Finished the left eye and nose, then started the mould process. I was nervous at first, I always thought that the original sculpture would be trash if you didn’t make the mould just right (that’s for plaster moulds), but after the first layer was dry I was hooked. I think (cross fingers) that this will be a good first test and I can then start scaling up. First pour of silicone I will let it cure overnight and apply another coat of smooth-on 5050 in the morning. So far easy to work with and …

New installation at Sis&Moon

Spicing up the gallery. I am moving to a new space, same building, and thought it would be worth a saturday. I thought about it for a minute and started with brown butcher paper for visual structure. Then an aqua and beige landscape under it, with a little white line for more structure.   Then some paintings on top.

Cardboard head

Dire wolf head for the wall. I started with my dog as a model, and tried to keep it simple. Also keeping supplies simple: a pencil, a box cutter, t square, Elmer’s glue and some scotch tape. – I quickly sketched my dog, Maggie’s profile. In the picture below you can see it cut out. I used the two profilesI cut to guide the build. Internal supports where added to so pieces could be built independently them jointed after they where ridged. This is the the head now, I plan to smooth and paint while maintaining a very square profile. …

Coast to coast… Again!

John, Michi and Alex are working. The “Tenchu” painting is in john’s hands now, Michi has “The chicken lamp” and I am working on “skull 5”. I would like you to understand how this process works. You may find it hard at first, but the short answer is we paint over and on each others work. This is something requiring a great deal of trust. Our process is as much a collaboration as it is a critic on the work itself  a commentary that carries with it a wet brush. So the painting passes from artist to artist each editing, …
