    [–] Tom knows best MrStevenRichter 2 points ago in Unexpected

    This happened to me yesterday! I work at 'Tom Spina Designs', ordered a bacon, egg and cheese from the deli and it showed up with Tomato and Spinach on it.

    The green one is the pink one (Rebound 25 from Smooth on) with some tint in it. It's so I could tell where I had already built up enough silicone. And the shell is strips of burlap dipped in Ultracal plaster, but for something small like this, plaster bandages from the craft store will work if you build it up thick enough.

    Silicone, like the orange stuff covering Hulk. The orange version is a little thicker and brushable, the clear version is thinner for pouring.

    Monster clay is good if you are going to mold your sculpture (you can't bake it, it melts.) If you want to tinker a little everyday, this is a good one because it never dries out. It behaves more like a wax. And WED clay is a good water based clay. It is good for soft forms like life sized busts. It is easier to texture. And it's cheaper so it's good for large volume sculpts. But you also can't bake it, it will shrink and crack. I've only ever tried sculpting with the intention of molding and casting. I've seen people do amazing work with super sculpey, which is an oil based clay you can bake, but I've never tried working with it myself.

    Thud by John Deley and the 41 Players (The closest thing that the youtube library of free music has to 'Immigrant Song' by Led Zeppelin.)

    That's crazy how little it shows up in real life. I feel like those muscles always get exaggerated for creatures/ monsters.

    You have a much better understanding of anatomy than I do. lol. I was using this image for reference for "angry neck" Which if I'm understanding the terms correctly, also kinda displays the problem of muscles behaving weirdly. But you're right, and I think I still went a little heavy handed with the platysma ridges.

    Got into sculpting about 6 years ago, kinda out of the blue. I always loved movies and so I wanted to make props or characters into tangible objects. My older sister Jen paints, draws, and Photoshops, and inspired me when we were growing up. I do this kind of work professionally at Tom Spina Designs. As for time spent; I did this project in less than 10 days (weekends and free time after work) and it is one of the quickest projects i've done.

    Thanks! The skin is Colormatch resin from smooth on. Its two liquid parts that you mix and then it turns into plastic. It is very trial and error to get right, but they do sell silicones, clay and resin in smaller trial sized kits for messing around with.

    I used Monster Clay (medium hardness) it's an oil based clay so it doesn't dry or get baked in an oven. It works more like a wax.

    Thanks! It's Monster Clay (medium hardness), it's an oil based clay, so it never dries out and Ultracal plaster over the silicone mold.

    I can! Cuz it was me. I was trying to do a faded paint look, with brighter and brighter blotchy/streaky layers. It's supposed to look like the worn, rusted and faded look of the arena Hulk and Thor fight in.
