ME ME ME!!

Well, Friends, I have finally been able to make an action figure  of myself. I have found the perfect head, of which I now make molds, paint, and eventually put onto a headless GI Joe.

Additionally, I have started a collection of really lovely, pigmented casts of this head. Here’s my gallery.

Finally,  I’ve made an action figure of my friend David, who doesn’t look much like me, but what’re you gonna do.

Boar Head 6: Big Boar

I really like the last few boar heads I’ve made, so I wanted to kick it it up a notch. Making the boar head on a larger scale has it’s share of challenges, some things are much easier to do. The boar’s little teeth, for example are much less of a headache on the big boar. The bottom picture should give you an idea of how big this boar head is.

Glazed: Lion Head and Boar Head III

I think I will make a plaster mold for casting ceramics, so I can make more of these boars. Overall, the third boar is a success, but I prefer the rough texture of the un-glazed boar.

I think the glaze worked very well for the lion, though.

Ceramic Victorian Ornaments

I was inspired by my wooden ornaments to try some 3D suckers. These are ceramic, but I intend to make molds out of them and cast polyurethane resin copies.

This one is for my girlfriend (Trinh is her last name). I can make copies for her sisters, too.
