A Unique Birthday Present: Zombie Head By Goldsmith Alexis Kostuk

21 Aug
2010

When Goldsmith Alexis Kostuk was requested to design a zombie head as a unique birthday present for the client’s boyfriend she jumped at the opportunity. She considered designing the piece out of just wax. Instead, she used a product called Sculpy, which is oven-baked clay, after which she made a mold, injected the mold with wax and used the lost wax process to cast the piece herself, adding a patina to darken the head and sharpen the details.

Stages of the process (in photos) and finished piece…

Alexis lives in Toronto, Canada and you can follow her on her Glaciale blog.
