mold fail.

i don’t really know what to say to this.


and…..

TADA!

but on the other hand, i started feet and hands for kirin/hollow. i’m giving her high heeled feet as i think it’ll help elongate the line of her body. now, one hand is done, the other is evil glove hand and looks very ugly ^^;;;;




and now for something completely different -

BUGABOO!

depression’s a b*tch

April 27th, 2013 by _d2_

yeah, i’ve been battling a really bad bout of depression this last two weeks. things at my job are not going so well – i’m completely burned out and things at home weren’t so good (tired of having to do all the chores) and so i just ended up sleeping and eating all the time instead of working on my dolls or art.

but these last two days i’ve managed to work on them. i’ve got feet and a hand started for kirin/hollow and finished getting the last pieces of pierrot to mold. things were looking up and going so smoothly…..

until i just tried to pour the molds. and the one for the upper torso – the largest of the molds to pour – failed catastrophically while i was tapping the last of the bubbles out of the silicone. this is a mold that takes about 4 cups of silicon (though i used less than that because i was able to reuse old molds) and now it’s failed. miserably. legos on two sides fell out and made holes and i just swore and threw it in the pressure pot with the other molds and figured i would deal with it tomorrow when it’s cured.

i’m hoping i’ll be able to salvage it because if not, i don’t have enough silicone left to pour it again so it means i would have to wait for money to order it – which means waiting for at least two weeks.

it’s probably a good thing we don’t have ice cream in the house because i think i’d sit down with the entire container, crying and watching basil rathbone sherlock holmes…..

updates woot!

well, i’ve got some pictures. and i’m nearly ready to remold three of the four pieces i had to redo. sadly, i killed my fingers trying to clean off the blocks i forgot to clean when i had the major spill…. i’ve already put blood sweat and tears in today, but i’m hoping to get further along and pour the molds tonight before bed. i hope.

i think i also need to get more legos. sigh.

but here are the pics -

here are the new and old arms: the one with the dark grey hand is the redone arm. i like it a lot better now that i modded it.

sorry for the delays

i’ve been focused on getting pierrot to the finishing stages.

and while i was able to get a full junk cast of her done, i wasn’t happy with her upper torso and arms so i’m redoing those right now. and it’s taking me longer to get the upper torso carved and sanded than i thought. i was hoping to start pouring new molds today, but it more likely will be tomorrow.

i took this crap-tastic picture the other day for an online friend and thought i’d post it here as proof that pierrot is in fact coming along!

i know in the past i had said march for possible sales – but now i’m going to say it might be june…. *faceplant* isn’t that how life works?

about


i've been drawing for as long as i could hold a pencil and art became my first language. though i've only been sculpting since 2007, i fell in love with the idea of being able to bring my drawings to life. i am heavily inspired by medieval macabre artwork, japanese yokai, and oddly enough, sherlock holmes. currently i'm living just south of beautiful portland oregon ^^
