Wip 7 by EvanCampbell Wip 7 by EvanCampbell
Just an update on this. This is not going to be the color of the final piece. I coated the sculpture with a few layers of latex. I tinted the latex green so it would match the color of clay as to not be distracting. I am starting to add the goose pimples and give it some more stretch lines and other details. I like all this experimenting with different materials. I think for the look I am after...this approach will add a more realistic quality. Once I get it more finished I will sear some of the areas with a burner. I will mold the sculpture in plaster and either pour it up in silicone or gelatin. The final color will be a BBQ chicken look.

All those wonderful folds...
But something keeps eating at me; why did you coat it in latex? Because of the searing?
The finished product's paint job is perfect; it makes me hungry for wings every time I see it.

yes because the latex would ,help create a coating that not only I could burn, but it would slightly shrink and get tight the way skin would...that was my thinking anyway!  Thanks for the comment :)

Oh, I see... so the clay was only for the initial model which was used to make the mold, yes?

Beautiful! but I think the first one looks more real and scary than this. maybe its because of the color. [link]
I hope the final piece looks more better than this.

Hi Evan, love your work.

Are you adding the goosebumps on top of the latex and if so how?

also the latex, i guess this is going to blister nicely yeah?

thanks

Randy...thanks for the kind words...happy you like. I do like this one a lot.. I hope I make good decisions in the coloring. I am thinking of three settings for the final image...either a BBQ GRILL...Fancy platter on a ritzy table or just a stark cold plate with some blood leakage. I will probably photograph all three and see what has most impact. How are those big bronzes coming along?

You bet Evan...
Really looking forward to seeing the different variations you come up with.
All three sound perfect...It will be hard to decide which one you like best I bet.

The big pieces are pretty much finished in clay...just some final tweaks and touches before I plunge in to the moulding process. I had to finish up the sea turtle and caterpillar before I started laying on the rubber.
I need to gear myself up mentally and physically for this one.
It's the big moulds that remind me of my age...heh heh.

Always great to hear from you my friend!
Take care

He's looking nasty for sure. But I bet he'll look tasty when done.

Do you dot the pimples on with latex? I do that on seam lines and sometimes fleck them on with a cut down chip brush dipped in latex.
