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 sent this piece to the Hive gallery in LA, for their May 2013- Line Attack 2 (Doodle Art themed show). I was hoping the 450.00 piece would sell but alas no sale. I will return it to the studio and try to find it another show.
My space is a bit dark, so I have added some lights. I think I need to put a spot lights on the masks, maybe a blinking light. Today is “Lunch Truck Thursday” I hope someone takes home the Thunder Lizard. If not I’m going to send it to the Hive in LA, see what those guy can do with it.
