Loooonngg Time Lurker, First Post!!


In all his glory!!

Continue reading for In-Progress pictures :]

So through my Junior Year of highschool (this past) I finally
made my way into a much sought after class of ours:
Visual Effects and Design. Its taught by our says-it-like-it-
is art teacher Mr. Byzcinski, a man who leaves you flying
by the seat of your pants to make all the mistakes in the world
until you do it HIS WAY. (a very wonderful man FTR :] )
We make Monster Masks, props, and animatronics usually
directed towards local haunted houses and things of the sort.

thats our lab, but by far not encasing the wonderful works
around the rest of the room, just the teacher, my station,
and a couple students.


Anyway, this was my second project, and probably the most
enjoyable, difficult process ive ever encountered as a student.


The clay piece in progress, it was a LONG PROCESS getting all of the
detail in that damn thing and many times i just found myself
face down in a GOD LET IT BE OVER nap.

I dont have a picture of the Plaster mold itself that was made
off of the clay, but the bastard was heavy, and im glad to be
rid of it!


The Latext Casts. I did three of these puppies and let me
tell you, half of my wardrobe is now ruined thanks to my
apron refusal, and hours of picking out latex from fibers
with dental tools. Pouring buckets of latex into giant molds
is something a dainty little girl should not do.
BUT IM A TROOPER!


The finished.. two out of three. the one with empty eyes
has a slit in the back to put your head through (yes it fits!)
and the one with eyes is full of polyfoam, and stands on its
own. Excuse the eye creepiness, we had no fake ones and
i had to paint them myself ><


This was probably the most fun Ive ever had at school,
and plan on spending all of my time in the lab this coming
Senior Year. I regret not taking advantage of the course
as a Freshman!

thank you very much!!
Yep, its the only one of its kind! our teacher does this
as a second job, basically, and rakes in all the funds
through grants and his own money. the class has gone
to conventions, made play props and movies all out
of this mans pocket and experience

Our rival highschool attempted to do a knock off of us,
but simply puddles around in zombie makeup and inky
things B)

thank you!! I wiped the buggers out millions of
times trying to get it to look right without
an airbrush :] I gave it to my little brother for
his 12th birthday, he thinks its the coolest thing
ever and now he can brag about his big sister
and actually have proof! haha

You have some great sculpting skills. I love how the mask turned out. Fantastic! I would have loved a class like this in H.S.
