Join us in our new studio located at 716 George Street in Midland Michigan as we spend four evenings creating some fun Big Monster Head props.
This project starts with a very unique way to create a three dimensional armature from a two dimensional silhouette. You can design your own or use one of the thirteen patterns available.
Once the armature has been created you will use strip mache to complete the form and then sculpt the final shape and textures using clay made from paper. The Big Monster Heads shown in the photos are simplistic and sort of retro but you will have the opportunity to add much more detail.
The finished Big Monster Head is flat on the back allowing it to be hung on a wall for display or mounted along with a torso and hands for a complete character.
