Annnd this is what happens when you finally get your 3DPrinter running perfectly... *Facepalm*

Joining newly done sections of the Link Master Sword, a master model I've been reworking to mold again. 
Changes I made are adding a more detailed version of the pommel triangle and blade connection, reworking the hilt wrappings and hilt end, and thinning the blade to about half thickness of original model I'd sculpted.

New design for my Han Solo in Carbonite Panels, changed up a few of the panel details to more accurately match film and added the blinking green light.
What dyall think? The blinking light wasn't in the film, but I was thinking it added some visual interest.. Yes? No?

Working on a Thor Ragnarok armor tunic.. We took a body form of the cosplayer and made my templates on the form, Will be doing a slight amount of leather wet molding over the pecs on my male mannequin and adding thin foam insets to get depth in the stomach area to match the on screen version.

Just got this guy in and it's sooooo neat I had to share!!! (The Crystal matrix on here is just incredible)
 I love props, but recently I started developing some small hand sculpted items, Ive been missing sculpting and 2 years ago decided to work on this as a side project in my spare time... Now I'm finally getting to the point I'm ready to share so watch out for some fun Crystals, Mushrooms and small chibi Mandrake and Pokemon sculpts as I finalize design ideas for them and start the sculpts! 😁
I'm excited to share this passion project with y'all and really hope you enjoy them!

Worked on cleaning up these 3D prints for a project last year with @bluewhalemakeup on a fantastic He-man armor for @questofthemusclenerd debuted at DragonCon. Super fun team of folks who made this happen.

WIP: Commission for a 'hard' pompadour wig from the Devil's Carnival, have it mostly fleshed out here in Monster Clay and building out the waves of hair.
TIP: When working oil based clay you can smooth the surface with solvents. 99% IPA alcohol is a weaker solvent, mineral spirits, and Naptha are stronger ones that actually begin breaking down the structure of the clay while smoothing the surface so you have to be sparing. (When working with solvents always use protection for lungs and skin).

SO MUCH SHINY!!! Really excited to get all these in!!! 😎
I have a side project I've been working on in my spare time for a few years and going to be doing a bunch of paint tests and resin test casts to get the finishes the way I want them!
For those who remember my Baby Emeralds: lil Pokemon and chibi animal sculpts, finally getting back to em. πŸ˜πŸ΅πŸ™πŸ¦„πŸ¨

Cold Cast Brass version of my Wonder Woman set..
Tip: Using a black base resin (such as @smoothon Onyx) gives an extra depth and shine when cold casting. I also use a black polish rubbed onto the surface to bring out the best in the metal.

Sculpt Repair I got to do on this really adorable catreature!
It was ceramic, a material which is always tricky both because during firing the clay is fused into a single piece in the kiln and the 4esultant conglomerate doesnt like glue very much and also since the true beauty of ceramic glazes are incredibly difficult to mimic with paints as that texture and the colors produced aren't flat but suspended in the glass part of the glaze. Luckily this was a matte and much easier to fill the missing bits and flaked off chips with putty then the slow process of color matching, I ended up mixing custom colors with pearls and metallics added in to get the correct final colors.
Really Happy with the final result and kitty is back in his home all better. 😁

I know I've been MIA lately and am back from an awesome vacation and birthday holidays! 
I got to take my niece and nephew to the glowworm canyon in Alabama and it was incredible!!! Unfortunately they don't show on camera, but the canyons themselves are otherworldly, swipe for more pics and I'll post one more set..
Am back in the studio and will be posting some new stuff for you guys!

Pretty stoked about my new spray booth!!
Huge thanks to my buddy Ryan for coming out yesterday and helping me move around the studio and build this bad boy!
I'll now be able to fit swords and longer items in here both legthwise and vertically. Still gotta pick up the duct and some small things to finish and add lights, but it's getting there! πŸ˜€

Wasp Costume and Wings I did a while back.
The wings are articulated so they can move up and down. Was a fun build and a blast working with this lady!

Link Hylian Shield.
I decided to go with a metallic gold instead of a yellow for the emblem, what do y'all think??
Used some specialty acrylic model paints and am super happy with the blue this time. 😁

Full head and shoulders lifecast in the studio yesterday, using @smoothon BodyDouble Silicone with a plaster bandage shell.
Much sass was in evidence during this fun session with @kilsayth and @nicholasaxiotis thanks for an amusing afternoon!! 🀣
(If you are ever considering a lifecast please be sure and use skin safe materials and do your research so you don't injured yourself or model. 😊)
