Satyric Demon

This Sculpture shares the same basic sculpt as my fire-tentacle-demon, but has different customised horns, tongue, teeth and eyes. The base-sculpt was made in oil-based Chavant clay and cast in EasyFlo Polyurethane, while the details were sculpted in Fimo. She was painted in acrylics, and decorated with shiny beads, clear matte varnish and mail polish on the teeth, tongue and eyes for that glossy effect. She’s about 11 cm tall including the base, but excluding the top horns.

Portfolio pictures taken with my EOS500D and my beloved 60mm macro lens. If you want to buy her or the Fire-Tentacle Demon, contact me at helemork@gmail.com or go to my etsy store.

The Moose-Troll and alpine skiier sculpture - Works In Progress

A few work in progress pictures, including a sneak peek of an alpine skiier sculpture, and the moose troll and myself. None of these sculpts are finished yet, and the moose-troll has gotten completely new horns and hair since the picture. Hopefully the new polyurethane and silicone I so I can mould and cast them. The moose troll is nearly finished. The alpine skiier statue however is a bit more complex, and is currently in the fridge to cool down a bit before  more details can be added.

Halloween Dolls - The Girl in Red

Last Halloween I sculpted this doll-head for a character, The Doll Man, which was a part of our Gothic Room in a Dungeon Display at my SFX-course. I cast quite a few of these heads, which were used as decoration with different paint jobs, but only one was actually completed. The green-skirted gothic doll was carried around, and has been decorating my book-shelf ever since. So I found out it was time to complete one of her friends, and picked the most colourful of the faces.

It consists of wire, wooden sticks, polystyrene, duct tape, fabric, more wire, hair, feathers, acrylics, plaster, thread, glue and various beads & bling. The body itself is clothed in the patterned fabric that can be seen on the arms and legs, and is a part of her body that can’t be removed. The corset, skirt and tulle underneath however is completely removable, although I doubt taking it off will look too smashing. The Green Doll however is much more heavy and has a body of plaster, as well as hands and shoes made out of plaster.

If you want to buy any of these dolls, or order a custom doll (in which I will use slightly more long-lasting materials for the body), send me an e-mail at helemork@gmail.com. They are not cheap. You can follow my art on Facebook, DeviantART, my Homepage, Instagram and buy my sculptures on Etsy.

The Seashell Troll

This Troll type is not yet up for sale in my Etsy Store, as I am out of polyurethane, but I am expecting more next week. This sculpt is meant to be a troll mimicking a shell, not a shell in itself, so a few anatomical changes were made. The Shell was inspired by the Buccinum family, but is slightly larger, less wavy, and the siphonal canal and fasciole at the bottom had to be cut to allow it to stand, also it has no parietal lip, as that would interfere with her legs.

This particular troll, named Siv, was cast in polystone, with quartz sand as opposed to the thin mixture stone-dust I’ve used in my previous trolls. I’m liking this mix better, as the colouration is more natural. This troll however was a bit too dark and is thus completely covered in acrylics.

Lastly, she has been coated in varnish, has plastic bead eyes, nail polish on her toenails and in the aperture. She sits on a Pecten Maximus in the picture, and is 8,5 cm tall.

The Golden Girl: Self Portrait Maquette

Finally had the time and equipment to take some better photos of this sculpture, which was a x-mas gift for my parents. The tiny self portrait was sculpted in the  oil based clay Chavant, and cast in polyurethane. It has been painted in acrylics and golden varnish, and I also added eye lashes and beads for the ears. This particular cast is not for sale, but if anyone of unknown reasons want a bust of me, I still have the mould…

The Cone Troll: Three Different Paint Jobs

In the first picture you can see Kalle and Tina, and the two bottom pictures shows Kåre from different angles. While painting the trolls I’ve tested out a few different colour combinations, and I am also very happy with how Tina’s green bead eyes turned out. I’m planning on doing bead eyes for all trolls from now on, unless asked not to.

I am also quite pleased with how at I can see clear differences in the faces of the male and female, and I can only hope other people see it too. That said, Tina’s colouring is probably the brightest and most “correct”, but the contrast is a bit over the top. Both Kalle and Tina have been sold, and as Kåre was the first cast he is not for sale. And yes, all trolls get their own name and number.

BUT  I am making as many Cone-Trolls as people may wish for the cheap price of 200 NOK  (roughly 31.5 USD / 24.5 Euro / 19.3 GBP) + transportation.
