That's very nice!! Great work
now you know folks gonna want to buy those when they are finished.
What medium are these sculptures done in?K. in Philly
Thanks, Wondy....Lovin' the blog btw...Anony1: If i can stand to part with them when I finally finish...K, these are created using styrofoam that I carve and then cover with papermachie and paint. They look heavy but they're actually really light.
They look incredible! Great work. Can't wait to see them finished.
So it is styrofoam... I was trying to sculpt with regular weaken, matress foam to work on toys but, since my foam is too wasty, I can hardly work on face details. Do you work with scissors or razors?
MSSF,Thank you! It may be a while until I finish them...the process takes a while..especially with a day job!Palanca! How are you doing? I hope you're feeling better! I did not even know you had a blog!As far as my working technique, I get slabs of styrofoam, the hard kind not the kind that comes in appliance boxes, and I use an electric carving knife to cut and shape the sculpture. You could use a regular serraded(sp?) knife. After I carve out the rough sculpt i take paper clay and cover the entire sculpture with paper clay and then do the fine detail work as I let the layers dry. You could probably use paper machie as well. The only thing about the styro foam is you can't leave the sculptures in direct heat or sunlight...it tends to cause the sculptures to expand and crack. Hope that helps and hope you are feeling well!
Hey sweetie thanks for your reply, yes I was too bad, now I at least am trying to be on my feet again (and the lose of sexual desire is the worst thing that might happen to an erotic drafter -is this word correct for a person who work on drawings? sorry if not). about the styrofoam it's correct that I must put the work on sunlight but since Lima my town is as foggy as London, there is no problem. The only problem is to get a good, mouldable, thick and consistent foam. In a beginning I thought of latex or rubber to work on toys (like dildos are made of) but I've got no orientation about it. Foam seems to be cheaper and more friendly according to chemics and things to process and drying time. But while nipping my bad foam I found out I need to wear a mask because the small pieces of foam seemed made of glass (like surfboard shapers work with glass fiber)... well things we learn when we decide to work on something...
