Mold process

This first image shows how i prop the head up so it will be as horizonal as possible.

When making a two piece mold you will have to find a line and make a wall so the mold will be able to come apart when your done. This line will be where the mold comes apart.

Here is another view. I use foamcore for the wall so that i don't have to use too much clay for the build up.

Here i started covering the foamcore with clay to make the clay wall.

Here i added a wall around the sculpture so that the plaster will not run off the edge. It helps to keep the sides thick and strong for when you pry apart the two mold halves.

Here the first half of the mold has been made and the second half is being prepped. I have made another wall to catch the plaster and applied vasoline to the plaster edge so the plaster on the back will not stick to the front half.

Here are the two mold halves finished.

Two more sketches

Here are a couple more misc. designs. Just some quick sketches

A few more designs

Here are a few new designs i finished. I have been trying to do more, but i am also working on my sculpture right now. I have signed up for a class at the pennsylvania academy in portrait sculpture. Taking this class will help me learn more about portrait sculpting and help me do better in my own projects. I have also been working on my website. I am trying to add a store and make some of my art available as prints. Thanks for looking.

New sculptures creatures and portraits

Here are a couple new sculptures i have been working on. These are creature designs that i am currently working on.

This is a portrait sculpture i worked on tuesday at figure drawing class. I am not sure if i am going to do anything with this one yet.

This study is from the previous tuesday at figure drawing class. I was in a position where i was getting interesting poses, but she favored one side towards me. It gave me the idea to only work on one side of the models face so here it is. I would like to finish this one and make it into a mini bust. Hopefully i will be able to create a couple of different paintjobs and add some hair to the female side.
