In the Studio - Small Paintings and Small Sculptures
I finished the underpainting on this little jackalope painting last night - it is a commissioned piece for a friend of mine who searched high and low for the perfect flocked jackalope. I'm hoping to knock out the rest of the painting next week after this layer dries.
I'm also going out on a limb and trying to make some small figurine sculptures of my own. I just bought some additional sculpture tools, so this should be a lot easier the next time around.
I'm toying with the idea of casting these in resin, and making a bunch of blank figurines. I may also be going crazy.
I used Super Sculpey clay over a skeleton made from wire, tin foil, and tape. I also bought this Stainless Steel Carving Set which I used on this little duck.
Now I just have to figure out the best way to cast these in silicone, and look for a good resin to work with. Maybe I'll take it full circle and make a painting of the figurines I make.
