The Pile...

Here are raw castings of the first batch of the Cthulhu and Mayan-inspired "Palms" wall reliefs piled up and curing until they're ready to be cleaned up, primed, and painted.

The molds and first pulls came out great! Here are pics of the first to come out of the molds.

Stay tuned for the completed pieces!

It's That Time Again!

The mold for the Cthulhu small wall relief is curing as I type this, as well as the mold for the "Palms" design, part of the City of the Twin Serpents series of artifacts.

The white squares are pieces of foam-core board with dome-shaped plastic cabochons glued on face down into the silicone molds. These will leave an imprint in the cured molds that will anchor the plaster reinforcement base that will be later poured in once the foam squares are removed.

Stay tuned for the first pulls!

Second Cthulhu-Themed Wall Relief Sculpt in the Works

And why not? He's a cool looking beast and a lot of fun to design and sculpt. This one will be approximately 5 inches tall, and like my other wall sculptures the final product will feature a wire loop on the back for easy wall hanging.

For a little while I was thinking about designing a custom display stand that will suit to display all my small wall reliefs for those who don't wish to hang them on the wall, but rather display them on a shelf. What do you think?

Cthulhu Calls!!!

I'll be producing a series of artifacts based on perhaps H.P. Lovecraft's most famous literary creation, the mythical Cthulhu. Some time ago I toyed with the idea of making a bust. That's still a possibility but I think it'll be best to start small, and work my way up to more substantial pieces, providing there's enough interest.

First up, is this tea-light holder:

The final piece will measure approximately 4-5 inches in diameter and feature a faux bronze finish with green patina.

Next up is a small wall relief. The design is meant to look like a fragment of a ruin of an ancient lost city. The master sculpt is nearly finished!

The finished piece will measure about 4 1/2" tall and will feature a sturdy wire loop in the back for easy wall hanging.

Stay tuned!
