Making my own Gronk!
« on: 19 July, 2015, 12:45:17 am »
So I've been making my own Gronk, as I just can't afford the 3A one.

I haven't done any clay modelling or painting in 20 years, so this is going to be tricky I think!!

Here's the basic framework, super Sculpey over wire:

Here he is with some smoothing out, slight detail, and a fur effect, ready to be baked:

Nuts - oven was too hot!

Ah well, I'll have to paint over the singes.

The first coat of paint. I was a bit impatient, plus I'm using the kids coarse brushes, so it looks a bit scrappy:

A little more detail, but now I have to wait for the paint to dry. Only really his eyes and some slight touching up left to do!

Finished!

Obviously nowhere near the standard of 3A. However, this is the first bit of clay modelling I have attempted in over 20 years, so I'm quite pleased with it.  :D

That's very cool. Though I see in one of the photos the process drove you to booze!

I must not Fear. Fear is the mind-killer
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration
I will face my Fear
I will permit it to pass over me and through me
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path
Where the Fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Well, I had to something while the Gronk cooked, the paint dried, each time I mixed colours, rolled up a new pice of Sculpey, posted update photos etc etc. ;)

I've written up the process in a little more detail for ECBT 2000AD, if anyone is interested:
