Making of Egg #25 Part 3

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Here’s the final video of my 3 parts “making of” timelapse, my experiment with new ways to paint and new mediums sponsored by Resene, I normally work with airbrush and fine brushes, but it wouldn’t work on the huge egg, so I’ve adopt new tools for this, roller makes egg-like textures, perfect for the job, and play around with blue masking tape for the first time, glad they all turn out perfectly! Finishing with automotive clearcoat by By Accident Panel & Paint. Thanks to everyone helped making this artwork possible! :)

…look what I found @ Britomart Carpark!

Making of….Part Two

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Hello Big Egg Hunters! Have you found my egg yet? I’ve just found out my egg is hiding at Britomart Carpark(Auckland), took me awhile to figure out how to hunt, got my app installed, I’m ready to hunt!

Here’s my making of “The Goose That Laid the Giant Golden Egg” timelapse Part 2 of 3, this one is all about moulding and casting with products sponsored by Nuplex Industries!

I often get emails asking about the materials I use for my toys, so this is what I use, I’ve tried many different resin & silicone, and one of my favorite is 4PU(resin), which give me enough time to hand-roto-cast(showed in this video), and Pinkysil or Ultrasil for silicone, they are both great products! I normally get large quantity, and pour them into smaller container for ease of use & less contact with moisture in the air, milk bottle are great resin containers! Enjoy the video, have fun hunting, I’ll have the next video up soon… #BigEggHuntNZ

This is the largest piece of artwork I’ve worked on so far, and I’m treating it like a giant blank toy, customize like how I’d normally do with resin or vinyl toys, a lot of fun making it, with a lot of support for making my piece possible! Thank you “Nuplex Industries” for your moulding & casting products, “Resene” for all the paints I used in this project, “By Accident Panel & Paint” did an amazing job of clear-coat for me, and “Bootleg” for technical supports!

Here’s the time-lapse making of video for my egg “The Goose That Laid the Giant Golden Egg”, part one of three.

….check back soon for my next video, have fun hunting! (I’m out to find my egg…)
