Old Bavaria... the Alpine Drop

Well... it's far to early in the morning to be up blogging, but I just finished the design for the last drop for "The Producers" and I thought I would throw it up.

I pencil sketched this one a week ago or so and just cleaned it up tonight so it'll be ready for the crew to start on in the morning.

Casting Pigeons for the Role...

Here's the mummified pigeon encased in plaster. The mold is only half done because the plaster needs to fully cure before you can cast the other half of the mold. Looks like maybe tomorrow will be part 2...

Shooting Clay Pigeons

Yeah... I know bad joke... right? This is the sculpt for the pigeon puppets for the upcoming production of "The Producers" at Jamestown Community College. Since we have to actually create 10+ individual puppets, it's worth the extra effort to create a mold and mass produce these rats with wings.

I'll be creating a mold out of good ol' plaster of paris in two halves. The final puppet will be latex and flexible. No wings yet as they will be added later as part of the inner mechanism of the puppet. A little more smoothing of the body and we should be ready to create the mold.

In case anyone is wondering... this guy's body is part styrofoam with clay on top of it. I took a half-sphere of green floral foam and glued it to a regular white styro cone and then v-cut the point of the cone off to form the part of the pigeon which befouls statues.

UPTOWN for "The Producers"

This past weekend was a busy one. The (slightly smaller) crew finished another backdrop for the upcoming production of "The Producers" this past Sunday. Awesome work. Paint was flying by 8:30 PM, but we got it done! Here's a few photos...
