Make A Gargoyle. Full series video featuring sculpting the gargoyle from clay, molding the clay gargoyle with latex, building the mother mold, casting the gargoyle with concrete and painting the concrete gargoyle cast.
Part One: Make & Sculpt A Gargoyle - Clay Sculpture. Make and sculpt a gargoyle from water based clay. Showing parts and segments of the process sculpting and shaping a gargoyle from clay. Using items and tools, such as basic sculpting tools, and paintbrushes to create an effective sculpture of a gargoyle.
Part Two: Make A Two Piece Plaster Mother Mold. The latex mold for the gargoyle sculpture is being prepared in this part for the mother mold. The creation of the mother mold making process is shown to prepare for the next stage, which will be shown in the following part, to be ready for casting in concrete.
Part Three: Cast A Concrete Gargoyle. Cast the concrete gargoyle using a latex mold and plaster mother mold. Fill the latex mold with concrete from the pre-made molded gargoyle sculpture. This part shows the casting process of how to cast the gargoyle in concrete which follows on from sculpting the gargoyle with clay and making the latex mold, plus the mother mold. Concrete recipe: 2 parts sand to 1 part cement, squirt of washing up liquid/dish soap, concrete bonder and nylon fibres/polyfibres ( I forgot to mention the fibres in the video and you will need to add the fibres or similar aggregate to strengthen the mix. Plus mix in water, of course. :)
Part Four: Paint A Concrete Gargoyle. This part shows the stages of painting a concrete gargoyle using acrylic paints. A dry brush technique is used to build up layers of paint to create paint effects. The gargoyle was molded and casted in concrete from the original sculpture by Dramamask Evolution. Colours used: black, white, brown (burnt umber), green (sap green), and yellow (cadmium yellow).
