I use an oil based clay, similar to plasticene, to craete the figures and many of the smaller items. This type of clay allows the sculptor to include an amazing amount of detail. It can be re-used again as it never dries.
After introducing the sculpted figure into the background and making any final changes needed, I make a silicone mould and then cast the pieces in resin.
Finally, I apply a paint effect to create the illusion of brilliant white plaster, which matches the background in the piece.
Each of my pieces contains a striking splash of colour against the brilliant white background. I love working in three-dimensions and especially love the play of light with shadow. Each piece tells a story, but I like to leave a lot to the imagination of the viewer.
