Sculpture



Here is something I originally designed in 1989 then later sculpted in 97. It was made with a standard water clay that was baked than cleaned down, primed and painted in acrylic.

This is a sculpture I did of the Conquistador zombie from Lucio Fulcifs Italian horror classic gZombi 2h. It was in fact the American movie poster that graphically featured the iconic undead image that I so wanted to recreate.

I started out with a foam wig stand to get the mass for my 1:1 scale horror bust. I also built around the base of the neck with foam for balance.

Using PVA wood glue mixed with a lot of glaze medium I coated it many times to seal and create a tacky surface for the air-drying clay to stick to.

Once I finished sculpting it I sealed with glue and glaze again then primed and painted it. After painting and sealing I chopped up some sawdust to a finer grade and added it with some miniature railroad turf to give him a caked on gritty texture.

Now finished and on the shelf I think hefs great!!! Even though he would eat me if he could.
