Peter Cushing - bust by revenant-99 Peter Cushing - bust by revenant-99
This is my little tribute to one of my acting heroes, Mr Peter Cushing.
Sculpted in Sculpey Firm and standing about 8"high.
Painted with acrylics.

I'll be starting work on Christopher Lee soon, and both will be available as resin busts.

Thanks for looking and any comments are welcome.

Terry

Really great. Hard to believe you sculpted this in Super Sculpey.

Thanks, it's actually sculpted in Sculpey Firm which isn't as soft and springy as Super Sculpey. It's a slower process because the clay has to be kneeded a lot before its usable but it is more stable to work on when it come to adding all the details and textures.

Never used sculpey firm before, and haven't used Super Sculpey in quite awhile. What did you use for an armature?

The armature for this bust was very simple, just a length of aluminium tubing slightly bent at the top to get the angle of the neck. I wrapped some tinfoil around the top end to give the head some bulk and then just built it up from there.

Thanks...What did you attach it to? Did you build the sculpey over a block of wood for the castle?

I drilled a small hole into a piece of MDF board and then glued a length of steel rod into the hole. This gave me a stable upright peg for the aluminium armature to fit over.
I was then able to either slot the armature over the peg and work on my sculpture standing on the board or I could lift it off the peg and hold it in one hand in order to work at it from different angles.
For the base/castle section I wrapped a bit more tinfoil around the lower portion of the armature to bulk it out a bit and then built it up in sculpey from there. I used regular Super Sculpey for the bulk of the base as it's easier to build up large areas quickly with, and then I added a thin layer of firm sculpey over that to sculpt the detail and texture into.
