  1. Week # 11 The Man in Black (Titus Welliver)

    March 15, 2011 by admin

    Had a hiatus for 2 weeks.So this week I started using a new material called castilene which is very soft when warm and hard when cool and it was great sculpting with it

    Heres the sculpture of MiB/Man in black/ jacob’s brother / smokey who is played by the actor titus welliver. The whole sculpture will be part of wave 1 of Lost collectables


  2. Previously on weekly mini me….(and an untold story from Fringe)

    February 26, 2011 by admin

    So this week im just taking a bit of a break and looking back at 10 weeks of weekly mini me.

    I’ve progressed a lot and learnt a lot from my mistakes. There have been a few dud weeks ( Patrick jane , Obama etc) But overall good progress and thats what its all about. In week 10 I finally started sculpting in wax. I hope to keep doing that more often in the coming weeks.

    Here’s a quick pictorial rundown of the last 10 weeks

    I would really like to thank all the people who have been following my work via my blog / twitter/ facebook. Its helped motivate me to create stuff week after week.

    And now……for an untold story from weekly mini me.

    Week #3 was the first competition. Nikoleta Here won the sculpture of Walter Bishop.

    What no one knew (or rather what i never told anyone ) was that the original sculpture of John Bishop with the work in progress pictures actually got destroyed!! It got burnt in the oven!

    The material i use to sculpt (super sculpey) has to be baked in the oven at 275 F / 100 C to become solid. What happened in this occasion was after it was all solid i ended up leaving it in the oven and the next day when my fiancee wanted to use the oven she turned it up to the max without realising there was anything in the oven.

    The Result
    Burnt Walter Bishop Sculpture

    I had to scramble and make an entirely new sculpture that week of Walter Bishop. So all’s not lost.

    Actually this made me revisit the sculptures. I made it bigger and that prompted the other Fringe sculptures (which are in the process of being painted)

    and now for an unannounced bonus!

    Its been a while since there has been a competition.

    So…how do you like sound of winning aone of a kind’ bust of Charlie Pace. This won’t be made available as part of Lost Collectables and no copies will be made of it. So whoever wins it will win a unique statue.

    I haven’t come up with any rules for the competition yet but that’s whats up for grabs! You all everybody!


  3. Week # 10 Desmond Hume

    February 20, 2011 by admin

    This was my first proper sculpture using wax. Wax sculpting is great but very time consuming so I was a bit apprehensive how quickly this would be done but thankfully completed by Thursday

    This head will also  be used in the Wave 1 series of Lost Collectables ( www.lostcollectables.com)


  4. Week # 9 Charlie Pace (Lost)

    February 9, 2011 by admin

    This week i managed to finish the sculpture in 2 days and worked well with the side profile. needs some tweaking but im happy with the progress


  5. Week # 8 Patrick Jane, The Mentalist

    February 9, 2011 by admin

    Ok. this week was a bit weird. I started on thursday instead of a monday and that left me with little time to do a good sculpture. not a 100% happy but serves me right for starting late
