Vampire Head Sculpt

I built the pedestal for this using an upside down vase that I got from Home Depot, painting it gloss black with enamel spray. I added a piece of black painted wood to the bottom (now the top) . I got some accessories from Hollywood Toy and Costume...blonde wig, plastic eye balls, lashes, and teeth. I sculpted the head in clay, then made a plaster mold of it. When the mold was set up, I poured liquid latex into the empty shell, letting it sit for an hour or so, then dumping the latex out, which left a residue on the sides of the mold. When that layer of latex set up I would repeat the process about four times until I got the thickness I was after for the head. I removed the head and filled it with weather proofing foam...sealed it...and postponed it rigidly onto the pedestal.

Re: Vampire Head Sculpt

How did you know what I look like in the mornings?... ok, you changed the hair colour, but it's so uncanny.

Hahahalol... I love it, it's great... I'd love to serve it for dinner - you know, the big reveal, when the cloche comes off!

Definitely love to have that in the library, in place of the usual bust!

Re: Vampire Head Sculpt

What the red queen wants the red queen gets. "Off with her head!"
Great work, love the detail. Except I like my vampires to have there heads intact. "My what big teeth you have?" Vampire smiles a toothy grin and says "all the better to bite your neck with!" Love the classic hammer fest movies
