werewolf progress with eyes by missmonster werewolf progress with eyes by missmonster
Since people liked the werewolf head so much, i thought I'd upload a progress shot. That is super sculpey over a taxidermy form. I hand painted the glass eye blanks.

The head was something i made just to have since I sell all of my other art i produce. It was a fun experiment and I will probably make more at some point. It was my first time playing with something like this so the next one will be much cooler. I just have no time right now, haha. But keep checking back :)

Enjoy!

Could I ask you where you bought the bear form? And the wooden base? I wanted to make a creature bust for my room but I'm not sure where to locate the forms. I've thought about checking my local Gander Mountain store, but their website doesn't have much I could use...

Really cool! I'm glad you uploaded this pic...always nice to see the before shots of stuff.
So eye blanks...how does one get those? I've been getting eyes from Van Dyke's for years, but have wanted to start painting them myself to get expressions on my larger dolls. I haven't asked if they offer blanks, though.

a taxidermy form, thats an excellent idea, I think my walls could use a jackalope.

Ah cool so you used a Taxidermy form. The finished one looks awesome. So how did you cure the sculpey on it? Did you use a heat gun?

So um.....a taxidermy head, is that like the stuff head of a real animal, or is it merely a mold?

Your work is so awesome, I really want to try and make some stuff like this some time, but I think I should start small and work my way up to a project of this scale.

Anyways, keep rocking on! =)

What type of sculpty did you use if you don't mind me asking. I was wondering how you would let the clay harden, I couldn't imagine baking it since it would melt the main body of the head. Or is it some sort of air dry clay If so how long would it take? Because you inspired me to attempt doing something like this. :)

missmonster Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2008
I use Super Sculpey, it's the best! You have to use heat to get the clay to harden...i used a hairdryer :)

Oh wow! That's actually really clever! I would of never thought of something like that. Did it end up working well? I would hope so! last thing I would want to happen is the face to end up being squished. DX

Okay, so you create the nose, teeth and lips from Sculpey, then what? Peel them off, pull them off to bake and reglue in place? This is an awesome progress shot.

No, i actually baked them on the face! I used a hair dryer, haha. It takes FOREVER but it actually works!

haha I was gonna ask you that actually! Thank ya, was wracking my brain figuring out how you managed to remove the sculpy, bake it and put it back on without warping it etc.

:iconmissmonster:
missmonster Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2008
Haha! Yeah it's a long process but it's better than trying to remove everything. I also coated with baked clay in liquid plastic to give it some strength before i painted it.
