chompers!




ain't he a little cutie?! there's nothing like a decapitated fox head mounted on the wall to keep you company through those long nights of painting.
made of sculpey, mounted on wood, painted with acrylic.

So fucking tight! I hope this is just the first in a long series of cute/creepy animal heads!

Jules said...

Wow, I want!
So awesome!

Lynn said...

Chompers is awesome. Certainly better than the "real" thing mounted on a plaque.

allie said...

thanks guys! Lynn, I saw a real taxidermy fox head mounted on a plaque in an antique store but couldn't afford it... so instead I just went ahead and made my own, with improvements!

Jennifer Watkins said...

How big is Chompers? He's fantastic and a wickedly handsome fox. Sly as they come.

allie said...

the board that he's mounted on is just a bit under 9x12. I haven't measured him yet, but I'd guessing the muzzle extends about a foot from the wall, maybe a little less.

Keith said...

Wow! This is awesome. Any chance you'll be selling these?

This fox is great

oh MAN


please do more, the world needs them!

just sculpy on the plaque? no skeleton or frame?

allie said...

Thanks guys!! There's a wire skeleton inside filled with tin-foil for extra support. It will be for sale on Etsy very soon (once I get some professional photos taken!) so keep your eyes peeled!

Bear said...

That is a fantastic, ahem, Mr. Fox. If you have any pix of the process I would love to see those. Great stuff!

moads said...

How did you paint the inside of the mouth?
It's Foxtastic!

allie said...

thanks everybody!
funny you should ask about the mouth... I was so excited for Chompers to get teeth that I glued them all in before painting the inside of the mouth. big mistake. I ended up having to spraypaint the whole muzzle with the dark red color to get all the nooks and crannies painted, then go back and paint each tooth individually back to white. I learned my lesson for sure.

Allie - this is beautiful.


May I ask; What did you use to give chompers that nice gloss finish? Regular old gloss medium? Thanks!

how can you make something so big out of sculpey? do u rest a thin layer of sculpey on something else to give it shape, and then bake the two together in the oven?? it looks great btw~
