I sculpted the original of this miniature dragon fossil in clay, this time with a round chunk of “rock” as the background so it could hang directly on a wall without the need to be framed. Each bone is three dimensional and quite realistic in appearance. The sculpt is about 7″ in diameter. Each finished piece is hand painted by me.
I only have these listed on Etsy when I’ve got one painted and ready to go. If I have any of them available at the moment, they will be at this link: Fossil Dragon Skeleton
These little cat magnets started out as a Christmas gift for the cat-lovers in my family, and I decided to make them available in the shop as well. While I’m not doing custom painted ones, I do have them blank and ready to paint, and will be doing some in my own painted designs.
After I crafted my Wolf Skull Mask, I had a number of other requests for skulls, and a raven was asked about the most! Seeing as I love ravens (and corvids in general), I was definitely willing to make that my next project.
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!
These are resin dragon skulls, sculpted somewhat flat to be used as wall hangings (that’s what the ones pictured here are), or as decorations for armor, props, or whatever else I feel inclined to use them for!
Meet specimen #1324-AT! This little fellow is a fossilized drakeling, or miniature dragon, captured in time and forever preserved in stone. To be more precise, he’s a cast resin replica of an original sculpture I did.
In the last blog post, Molding and Casting Garrus’ face, I showed you how I made the mold and cast the top part of my Garrus mask in latex. This one will cover some additional mask pieces. I won’t go into quite as much detail about the molding and casting process, since I covered it pretty thoroughly before. I’ll also show how the top part of the mask attaches to the bottom, and get to the beginnings of the neck build.
In the previous post, Sculpting Garrus’ Face, I showed how I sculpted Garrus’ face. This blog will show how the sculpture went from clay to latex, and the continuing process of building the mask.
I decided to make a one-piece mold for the face. Before starting to make the mold, I needed a base to catch the plaster runoff. I started by building a wall of cardboard pieces around the base of the sculpture, attached with hot glue.
