The invisible Man

Posted by Andreas on 21 Apr 2016, 08:44

Hi
I`m dealing with an Idea i had a long Time ago , i will try to sculpt a kind of invisible man and i hope it works ...
Any Ideas ? Maybe a kind of Ghost or a mad Scientist ?
I will show you the first steps ... even if I fail :-D
I think this could be fun

Maybe to sculpt regular figure and then cast it in crystal resin or some other sort of transparent material? Just my 5 cents.

Agree with Dali. If you want him to be seen at all that is.

A good idea and if you can find him,there`s no need to paint him.

Of course there's need to paint him! How should we be able to see him if we don't paint him? In an old short story by Jack London there is invisible paint. Read it many years ago, but I thought it was quite good.

If you can find a suitable figure, or part figure, just leave a trail of footprints on a clay or putty surface.

That's how we years ago on a airmeet announced the first Stealth bomber. Three weelblocks and a plate with F-117 Nighthawk! Big fun it was! :-D

The first Attempt did not work , i thought it would be difficult to sculpt with that `clay` but it doesn`t .
The Clay should get clear but don`t.
Second Attempt looks better

Mad scientist is one idea, or just scientist. He doesn't have to be mad.

As soon as it is worth to be shown . I need to do a lot of Layers . The Shape right now is very Basic .
I hope to get a nice Effect when i start to sculpt the Muscles . It needs a lot of time for drying too .
