Amazingly Creative Mixed Media Sculptures by Artist Matthew...


Amazingly Creative Mixed Media Sculptures by Artist Matthew Cummings


Matt says that all of my sculptures are planned out. I have to know how much materials i need to complete a piece. I start by studying the animal to be sculpted using photos,books etc. then I make the armature from wire (at this stage I can play with the pose and get it fixed to the base (if there is one). After that I build up the form with different grades of mesh, starting with the finest. Then the modelling starts. If its a big piece I sculpt the face and feet separately with polymer clay and fix them on, the reason for this is that I use a domestic oven to bake the polymer clay. After that I add epoxy putty etc and paint using spray paints and acrylic tubes.!!!. However, my fantasy and figurative work Is made up as I go along, maybe with a basic theme. I prefer to work from my imagination, its way more fun but takes longer as there’s more choices to make.
