I use various techniques to finish the surface of my sculptures. Most of chimpanzes I make in gray and close to flesh colors. Depending on a painting technique you can choose the color of the casting for yourself. Therefore some of sculptures I cover with patina or give them the bronze or aluminum metal character.
For many years, I considered the subject of animal characters to be too common. In my work, I very rarely choose repetitive motifs, but when I started sculpting a series of monkeys, I understood how important the knowledge of animal anatomy is... I took up the challenge and with great enthusiasm I finally created a series of chimpanzees. It was a good lesson - any kind of monster design should be approached with great care, passion and emotion.
This is how the sculpture looks like made of Super Sculpey.
