New Mask: Chimera Cat

Posted on
Chimera Cat Mask

New mask! This is one of Robbie’s painted works. It’s a chimera cat, an unusual color pattern where the kitty’s genes cause half of their face to be one color, half another. The most famous is a lovely cat called Venus, but there are a number of kitties like this. Often even their eyes are different colors!

This hand-painted, ready-to-wear chimera cat mask is available from Etsy. If you’d like to paint your own cat mask, we’ve also got these:

Dragon Mask

For this mask, I set about creating a stylized dragon design that could be worn as a masquerade-style half masque. I really love dragons, if the multitude of them on the website didn’t give me away. I hope it shows in the many details that went into every part of this mask!

This was SO MUCH FUN.

I was contacted about making a set of masks for a musical production called Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play. My contact had seen one of my older masks and, since it bore a resemblance to Mr. Burns, was thinking to use it for the production.

Dragon Wreath Christmas Ornaments

Dragon Wreath Christmas Ornaments

This sculpture depicts a traditional wreath of pine needles, with a stylized, serpentine dragon coiled around it. The dragon’s jaw is open and its tongue lolls out, and each scale all the way down its body is detailed in the sculpt.

A made a silicone mold of the original oil-based clay sculpt, and cast each piece in sturdy, solid urethane resin. Each one is then hand-painted and detailed, the wreath in shades of green, the dragon in a number of different colors.

Each ornament is 3 inches in diameter, and just under 3/4″ at its thickest point. While it is a solid-cast resin piece, it is also quite lightweight (less than 2oz). The hook attached to the top is 2.5″ long. The ornaments also come with a protective box to keep them looking pristine year after year. This is a fun and unique Christmas design for fans of fantasy creatures!

I only have these listed on Etsy when I’ve got painted ones available. If I have any of them available at the moment, they will be at this link: Special Holiday Items

Female Turian Mask in Progress

Posted on

Since I decided to mold and cast my female turian mask using resin, rather than using latex like I did with Garrus, I wanted to do a quick write-up to show some of the differences.

Casting with latex (a soft material) is done with a hard, porous mold, usually made from plaster of some kind. Casting resin (a hard material) requires a soft, non-porous mold, in this case made from silicone.
