I’M SO DUMB! Why limit myself! If anyone wants to back a bee you’re more than welcome - the more the merrier!
This project currently has two backers (which was the minimum I needed to start) and full funding for materials investment. So it will be going ahead no matter what. This offer is for people who want to
At the moment the project is “blind” as it were, I have no concept sketches or drawings or materials collections to show you, but that’s the whole point of this venture! You’re buying me time to spend on research and development - and at the end of the month you get an awesome bee doll for an amazing price! :D
For £110 you can back my bee project and get a prototype Bee doll by the end of May! The finished bee dolls will go up for public sale by mid June at their full price.
This offer will close on the 1st of May.
If you want to back a bee please email me, email@example.com
I’ll be making big batches of them when I get back on the 28th! They’ll be put up in my Etsy shop for £45 + P&P and will come in ALL the colours.
Yes, there are two mofs for sale in my Etsy shop at the moment.
I’m working on a project currently at the backer stage to release bee dolls by mid June. You may want to wait for those instead?
Exciting bee news is that the project has its two backers, so there will be bee dolls by the end of May!
It could be a number of things causing the problem, here are some solutions. Also, sometimes I find the best way to learn is through failure and repetition! As your piece is unbaked it’s not too late to scrunch it up and start again. The armature is just as important as the sculpting, you have to have solid foundations to work on.
Try hollowing out the head a bit. I always sculpt on top of tinfoil and that helps lighten it a bit. A good sharp scalpel will cut away unbaked sculpey without distorting the rest of the form too much.
I would not recommend this one if you are planning on selling the piece, but if the wire is weak you can try wrapping stronger wire around it and securing it at the shoulders and head with epoxy putty.
If the head is too heavy and the whole thing is just faceplanting constantly then you can try putting something heavy in the tail or feet, like pebbles, steel shot or dried split peas (again, don’t do this if you’re going to sell it).
edit: I did this so quickly I missed the bit about it being your final art project, so scrunching it up and starting again probably isn’t an option! The second and third bodge should be absolutely fine for a gallery piece.
That’s awesome to know, I’m really flattered! I’m not really in a stable enough state at the moment to offer a long term apprenticeship, but it’s something I’ll keep in mind for when things are.. Better. Anyone is more than welcome to visit me in the studio and have a chat and a cup of tea, though. :) If you’re in north east Scotland drop me a line.
Just a nose and horns with a squashy fat body~
OH RIGHT! I don’t earn enough to pay an apprentice reasonably! :) I’d love to though - it gets really lonely in the studio sometimes.
Yeah! If it paid reasonably, was in the right location and was relevant to how I want to develop as an artist. I applied for an apprenticeship at Neil Gorton’s SFX studio last year but wasn’t successful. He said he was really impressed with my work but had applications from people more experienced in the SFX industry, but would watch how I develop with interest. Which pretty much gave me the boost of the century haha.
