I'm doing a very short-run exclusive for the upcoming show, MaricopaCon 2014!

It's been a while since I posted an update on the argonian mask I'm working on for Robbie, so here are some photos of the sculpt-in-progress!
I made several spikes as separate pieces, for the back of the jaw and under the chin. This way, I can sculpt around them without them becoming deformed.
As I started adding scale details, I also realized it'd make this mask far easier to mold and cast if I removed the spikes and cast them as separate pieces.
More scales! I'm getting there. This guy has a ton of detail on him, and I'm loving it - even if my wrist isn't! I was pointed to the following tutorial by a friend, a great resource for techniques on how to sculpt reptilian skin.
Also, while the spikes appear to be reattached in the mask sculpt photos above, they're just set in temporarily so I can correctly size the holes they will fit into.
One last thing, a couple of horn sculptures, nearly ready for molding. The larger one will be used for the argonian's horns, while the smaller one is for another, secret project I'm working on. Shh. :)

I've got several glitched and test casts hanging around from my turian molds which, for one reason or another, are not suitable to be part of a normal kit. So I'm offering them at discounted prices! Take a look at the Miscast and Discounted Pieces page for further details.
Additionally, I put together a price list for getting individual turian kit pieces. For example, if you get one of the discounted faceplates and would like to put together a turian mask as a display piece, you can pick up the mandibles, crest, lower jaw, and eyes, and save a little more by leaving out the teeth which wouldn't show on a display anyway!

I got some glow-in-the-dark powder additive, so naturally I decided to make a glowing version of my dragon skulls! The glue-green glow powder embedded in the resin gives off a very impressive luminescence, especially for about the first 10 minutes, when it's bright enough to light the area around it. It can be charged up in sunlight or under a UV lamp, and the glow slowly fades but continues giving off light for several hours.
This new glow-y skull is available from our Etsy store!
