I recently finished a griffon sculpture, a larger and more detailed version of the one I originally designed for my acrylic charms. I made a mold, and these are the first two cast finishes available from it, done with cold casting metal powders. The silvery one is cold cast aluminum, and the other is cold cast bronze.
Both finishes are now available from my Etsy store!

I added a sketch for a new art piece I'm working on! This one got inspired by the costumers at Saboten Con last weekend.

It may only be the end of August, but I've already got a certain holiday on the brain. I figured it was a good time to add a nice, realistic human skull mask to my inventory! I call it "Smiley".
This one was kind of a speed sculpt! I wanted to see how quickly I could take a relatively simple mask from conception to reality. The sculpture you see above is not quite finished, but I got to moving too quick and forgot to take pictures of the smoothed, refined version before I started molding it!
It follows my fairly standard process of molding - two initial layers of Rebound 25 silicone brushed on to capture all of the details, two more layers thickened with Thi-Vex (kind of "spatula'd" on like I was icing a very strange cake!) with a few mold keys (not shown) added, and then one final non-thickened layer to pretty up the surface and make sure there were no air pockets around my mold keys. FreeForm Air is used as the mother mold shell, in two halves, to hold the silicone's shape when the mold is cast. The final photo shows the interior of the finished mold.
And here's the cast version! It's a good look for me, I think. :)
Blank casts like these are available in our Etsy cosplay store. I will be doing some sample painted masks and even offering some custom ones, if people want 'em, after we get back from Saboten Con this weekend!
