Hair Punching Silicone Sculpture Part 4

This past week the studio's been extremely busy with a number of projects needing to be finished by the end of the month .So, I've been stealing away a bit of time here and there to further the hair punching process on OM.

As you can see, I've started the styling of the hair as well as inserting body hair where needed chest, nose(yuk!) and ears. The hair colour has been adjusted as well adding some blonde to the mix. The colouring before was too even and I find most people gray in patches and or streaks. I chose blonde hair because it worked well with his skin colouration.

The sculpture still requires further tweaking on the hair as well as paint touch up on the skin in spots. The model is close to finish in terms of this phase of the project. I had mentioned before in earlier posts that this model plus seven others are part of an installation that's being planned.
Next time, I hope to show images of the finished model. Talk to you soon.

  1. Hey Art I am a huge fan of what you do and if I wasn't painting I think I would attempt to follow in your footsteps. I check into your blog often and am just amazed at your work.
