Easter Project for Redeemer Church 2017

For this past Easter Redeemer Church La Mirada allowed artists to participate in creating pieces based on the Stations of the Cross. Here is a detail from mine.


The Ember Dragon

My latest creation is a dragon! I have loved dragons for a very long time, so this guy was very fun to do. I started with a sketch.


Then, I formed the initial wire base.

Put on the initial layer of super sculpi.

I decided that I wanted wings after all, so I put wire/foil on for the wing frame, and then put on the sculpi. The thin, skin layer of the wings is strait up super sculpi, but in retrospect, I wish I had rolled it out a little more evenly, but what’s done is done.

Then, I sculpted to my desired effect and baked him! dragon1 copy] dragon2 copy] dragon3

I then painted him with a metallic red paint, and went over with charcoal to give a burnt look. IMG_1555] IMG_1561] IMG_1568] IMG_1573] IMG_1602] IMG_1603] IMG_1615] IMG_1619] ] IMG_1636] IMG_1641] IMG_1646


 I’ve been working on Sven for a while now, and he’s finally ready to show off.

 It started with a sketch, some wire, screws, and a platform.

Of course, my cat has to be right in the middle of things.


I filled him out with foil, and I then put Super Sculpi on him, sculpted him, baked him, painted him, and then sewed clothes right on to him.

Eventually, I gave him his phone.

I will try to show more of my process for the next one. Thanks for viewing!
