Shelly is a sweet little squirrel gargoyle with an interesting story!
Katella is a lounging cat gargoyle, ever-alert but contented.
This little one is Specimen 1314-JY. It’s a handmade polymer clay sculpture embedded in air-dry clay to imitate the look of a real fossil being exposed from the rock by wind and weather. I love all his cute sharp teeth and spikes!
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.
Some critters just lend themselves to becoming ‘goyles, and this little vixen was definintely one of them.
And Squirry the squirrel went “Neep, neep, neep!”, and they all went home for tea.
Okay, well, sometimes I do things just to amuse myself. 🙂
Well, I’d done a small cat ‘goyle… so I needed to do a big cat ‘goyle! I’m particularly proud of her paws with their cute little pawpads.
I know I’m not supposed to play favorites with my hatchlings, but just look at those little tiny teeth! I love little tiny teeth.
I really like this wand! It’s a very solid piece of work.
