Oogoo Sculpts




Just wanted to thank you all for revealing this perfect material :)

And let me show you couple of things done with oogoo as a sculpting clay ) The only thing that is different from the original recipe is the potato starch that i used.

The throne has been sculpted for my lil princess and her monster high dolls. Tinfoil carcass, some toy parts inside covered with oogoo and then painted with acrylic paint by princess herself :)

Decided to make a mask of a fly afterwards...dunno why but it came out quite fine. The same technique. Foil carcass. The eyes are made with a thread dipped in Glue and winded over a balloon. The cured mesh is then cut into halves.

The last one is just a mask that i started before the fly but i'm not yet satisfied with the overall design so I'm working on some adjustments. Some elements are removed already and I hope to come up with a better version soon.

All the things are sculpted with bare hands with some simple sculpting tools mostly. No instructions are currently made cause I'm a lazy person but i'll make one if some of you will find my sculpts interesting.

    Very nice work. I would like to know if the potato starch makes a difference to the final product, or if you just used it because it was what you had available. I would also be interested in knowing a little more about how the mask was made. What did you use as a form while you were sculpting it?

    Thanks! I think that potato starch does make a difference since it makes the final product perfectly white without yellow particles. However I might be wrong cause we don't have much corn starch in here. As for the form in both cases I used my head as a form to shape the face with alu-foil and cover it with oogoo the way I like. BTW both masks were damaged by a bunch of kids at a party. They were not really concerned how long does it take to create one...so I'm not really in for more masks in nearest future ...however the one fully made with oogoo is a tough one. Just has some dirty stains on it.

    Thank you. I was just curious. I have never made anything like this, but I might like to try sometime. Right now I've been reading up on Oogoo, since I stumbled across the original Instructable a little while ago, trying to learn as much as I can before I try it out.

    Corn starch is extremely common here, potato starch is a lot harder to find.

    wowza! These are way more than just interesting, they are amazing! Kudos!

    About the last pic, the demon mask, how flexible is it? I mean will you be able to articulate the mask's jaw by opening and closing your own mouth behind the mask? It looks awesome, my vote is definetely for you to upload some kind of tutorial, this material being so new, I know it will be more than welcomed.

    Thanks! The demon mask is quite flexible but it still can't be compared to latex. But you might wanna try making it thinner. As I wrote above i'm not planning to make any masks in nearest future. But i'll surely continue my experiments with other cheap materials. I made one mask with construction foam, bandages and epoxy. It's a bit bulky but I like the weight. also added some pics of the final masks few days before they were broken.

    Great sculptures. I'd love to see more of a step by step process and maybe some links on how to make/acquire oogoo.

    regular metallic acrylic paint. Sticks quite good. Must not be touched at least 2-3 hours. I also discovered that regular glue gun material doesn't seem to stick to oogoo.
