Does this work for making gelatin or latex appliances? I was really hoping to learn how to make some for this falls Fan Expo in Toronto (I go for the horror section) and the zombie walk. I got such fantastic responses from last time that I need to find a way to up myself from what I did last year. And proper appliances that I could sculpt would prolly be my best bet.

But either way thanks for the tutorials! Fantastic!

You are much younger than I assumed you to be. For all the gruesome detail you put into your masks and sculptures, there is indeed a beauty behind it. It's more of a challenge to make something frightening or gross to today's society than to make something 'pretty'. In my eyes, this is a true work of art. One can see all the time and work put into this, very imaginative.
By any chance, was this used for anything? I didn't expect any hair to be put on it, but once it was, it looked a bit familiar.
I also got to wondering how anybody could wear it, since you put a second layer of burlap in it. Does it open somewhere, or is it just for looks?

Thanks so much...glad you found it interesting!
LasseBauer Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2010
Oh, yes. Very much so. I wish I had skills like that..or the time to start building them. Could be fun to do some masks.
What material do you use for creating the bust/sculpture itself?
MrFixation Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2010
Great stuff, your skill is remarkable and just over the top! So realistic that its scary! In a good way. Keep creating! ;}>

I always loved redheads. Now my feeling changed slightly.

very intresting. we just had molding and casting in lessons. I would start right now if the materials wouldn´t be so expensive.

very good work, sir. I´m looking up to you
LatimersLust Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2010
this walkthrough is fantastic! i'v been wanting to do this for so long but the confidence just hasnt been there but this makes me want to give it a shot.
i was wondering, inside the clay head, do you build it over some sort of armature and if you do, what is it made out of?
also how lond did the head take you to sculpt?

final product looks like me on a bad day
notreallypurple Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2009
You are an absolute treasure-trove of knowledge.. I am so glad I ran across you and started watching! I am a little more interested in trying solid casts with rubbery molds than vice-versa, but this tute provides vast amounts of insight either way.. like prying-points! I catch myself thinking 'OMG I would have never thought of these little tips unless I had seen the pros do it first.' And this particular tute is gonna come in perfectly handy if I ever try one particular latex mold project I'm fond of.

If I had a question for you I guess I wanna ask what modelling clays you like best. I am used to being able to fixate ideas in sculpey, but I am also coming around to modelling clay just to hash out forms (I can't believe the lovely finished products you make in plastalina, it seems so impermanent to me).. I just plain hate starting up from armatures, I wanna mush the whole composition together at once with all its basic proportions and action lines intact, so I'd really like a firm modelling substance that can take that sort of abuse.. I am considering buying several pounds of 'Medium' castilene, since I have a heat gun and can either mash it or carve it, sounds like. But if you have a better recommendation that would be great.
EvanCampbell Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2009
I have never used sounds like a lot of work to me - but if you do not want to make an armature that might be the way to go. Google Chavant clays - comes in many different grades and colors. The very firm grades is what they sculpt real cars out of. Most of the people I have worked with use this product for detailed sculpting. Thanks so much for writing such a great comment...this means a lot to me!
thehotmageaeris Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Handsome AND extremely talented! You have it made. I'll never stop being impressed. :D

These have been extremely awesome and helpful. I can't wait to surprise my dimensional illustration teacher with all that I've learned here- many thanks!
EvanCampbell Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2009
That's great to read...I'm glad it may be useful.
JamieDMac Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2009
Thanks so much for doing this Evan! I dread moulding and casting stuff, never really learnt how to do it properly. So to see you go through it step by step is incredibly useful.
I've tried glueing hair on a model a couple of times and it was always a complete disaster. Never thought of using latex as an adhesive. Will have to give that a try next time.

...that is one of the cleanest plaster moulds I've ever seen...
EvanCampbell Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2009
Thanks so much is nice to see a good response on this.
As far as the hair, latex can still take some time to dry - contact cement works really fast.
Thebuild Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2009
Really great work, I lvoe seeing you build this piece up as well as explain the stages and techiniques used (such as going from light to dark first).
