More doodles, more ideas, more fun There are four more pages with this stamp of clem’s head, I will start rocking out the real thing after this weekend… Stay tuned and have a great weekend. Yellow on green with purple and red detail. I’m going to find my old 3D glasses when i get home and see what happens. I will be working on this over the weekend, If you have any suggestions please leave them in the comments below.
Just painting and planning, painting the last thee dog heads and planning the next iteration of sculptures/ paintings. Maybe giant dog head maybe giant kangaroo? Or tiny collectible dog dolls. Everything is on the table right now.
All three of the ‘Clem Heads’ so far. So Shinny. This blue enamel is like butter to work with, One Shot and Rustoleum <3 ! This is first of the seven heads, to be mount on reclaimed fence board… stay tuned for more.
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!!!!
With the outer shell done (plaster around pink silicone) I made the first casting. The gary head is the plastic casting (copy), the white one is the original sculpted (modeling clay) head, and the pink is the silicone negative. This is my first pour, I need to practice, a few thin spots and air bubbles. Clem was happy with the likeness. A little vanilla sky, Clem style.
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 …
A new Plastalina dog head sculpture. I’m making a door knocker based on my smallest dog “Clementine”. She will love it, the door bell makes her crazy. A few more hours and then, I will need to mould it. Wish me luck.
