[quote="Michael Sith"]Yeah scary stuff, I'm a chicken, so would run a mike from some of these :lol:

What you doing on the yoda mate, bust or full piece? Will be an awesome piece.

I love the Fett from the Sarlaac 8) cool

Love the C3po and the Yoda in Carbonite.

And the Mikey of course :D

Cheers mate
Well my shed out back is being rebuilt, got to wait for that to be finished, this stuff is far to messy for indoors though i have done pieces in the kitchen before today, including mikey, yoda will be a full lifesize piece, head hands feet and body, all done separately starting with his head

Heres a jaws display i put together, i'm a big jaws fan to, the teeth are cast from a screen used original, bruce the shark had one set of teeth which were all cast separately and these are copies from them, also in the display is a tiny piece of the orca 2 the second boat used in the movie for the end scenes when the boat sinks

Brill, you'll have to post up a thread when you do the yoda and show him in stages, that will be awesome 8)

Yep don't mess up the kitchen!

The Jaws piece is fantastic, so is it's little brother, another treasured piece mate :D

A few people have asked me about the yoda in carbonite, its only small heres a pic so you can get an idea of scale
Image
I don't mind doing a few for members at cost, i can make them fully painted out of plaster for cheapness at £13.00 each, or out of resin which is sturdier and less prone to breakage at £25.00, those prices are delivered in mainland uk, i'd need a few people interested so i can buy the stuff
shoot me a message :D

Heres a few more, first up the freddy snake from nightmare 3 with my son Lucas when he was little, love this pic, i allways told the kids growing there are only plastic monsters no real ones and daddy makes them, so they have never been bothered by them
Image
Lucas loved the new dr who growing up, and especially the monsters, he loved the weeping angels from the episode blink so i made one for him, heres the clay sculpture

Image

And the finished mask

Image

Heres a peter weller robocop sculpture, i need to finish this one

Image

this is a full upper torso puppet of dr tongue from day of the dead, my replica had remote control eyes and brows and head and neck movement

Heres a few more pics, first up a few pics where you can see the clay sculpture, as its friday the 13th today i chose Jason voorhees, heres the first pic, very rough here just throwing the clay on here
Image

then after a few hours work it gets closer to the look i'm after

Image

Image

the final sculpt has a two part mould made, i then pour in liquid latex and once thats sets i add a foam similar to the stuff you use on window frames but soft and flexible, once that is set i pull the mould apart and paint the rubber head

Image

heres a few random busts i've done for other collectors,
v bust
Image

Alien, i repaired and repainted this, around ten foot tall
