Please feel free to delve into the seemingly Bottomless Abyss that is my gallery.
All flash photography, food and drink are not allowed, please refrain from touching and/or licking the artwork.

Thanks You for your patronage.


Some of superb works of genius that have grabbed, repeated touched and made warm my attention.
Please join me in rejoicing in how utterly devine the following works are.


Bits of Brick Bazooka by frasierdalek
Bits of Brick Bazooka
Small Soldiers was one of my favourite films growing up and I was pretty addicted to it for quite a while. Buying all the action figures and whatnot.
As is the way with these things the fire died away and it was forgotten (Sort of), but recently I got back into it and remembered how I used to make air-dry clay models of the characters (Specifically Link Static for some reason) and this gave me the urge to try making something from the film but with proper Sculpey clay.
I thought I'd try Brick Bazooka, as the character's chunky joints and limbs really appeal to my sense of tactility in sculpture.
And so I made his head and his left arm...The idea of making an entire "puppet" made me wince with discomfort at the thought of the amount of Super Sculpey I would be using up in the process, even with a newspaper and tinfoil armature at the core, which is my practise these days. 
I made the arm mainly because I always wanted to try making a proper "Hinge joint" as I've tried numerous times in the past and never truly succeeded. This one works very nicely and I'm very pleased with it. Its more of a practice piece I reckon, a nice test to give me an idea of how to approach such joints and sculpting in the future.

Someday I may finish Mr. Bazooka. But I'm not in any hurry to I have to say...

He is made of Super Sculpey for the flesh tone, which is unpainted but glossed. The teeth and hair are colour Sculpey elements, as is the hand/glove. The eyes are painted Super Sculpey and the highlights in the face are picked out with some dry chalk powder. 

A fun piece indeed. 
Thunderbirds Are Go! by frasierdalek
Thunderbirds Are Go!

 Scott Tracy from the revamped and Supermarionation-arific version of Thunderbirds by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. 
Which I’m loving quite shamelessly. 

    Made from Super Sculpey and regular Sculpey for the colour elements. Oh and tin foil. (Very Blue Peter)

So recently BBC Worldwide wanted to display some fan artwork relating to the 12th Doctor (played by Peter Capaldi) at this year's San Diego Comic Con and so put the word out on Tumblr. I dutifully responded and attached a couple photos of some stuff I had done recently and that was that.
Put it aside. Forgot about it.

Then several weeks ago I got an email rather excitingly from BBC Enterprises saying that they would indeed like to show my submissions and sent a form for me to fill in which basically gave them the right to pimp out my work to their heart's content etc etc etc.
Being the good little attention whore that I am I happily signed the form and sent it back.
I actually somehow by this point had forgotten what I had actually submitted to be shown as I had sent off a couple bits and pieces for consideration.
I asked the woman who emailed me to say that my submissions had been chosen and she rather politely told me what really I should already know. Which obviously made me feel a right nana. 

Anyway after that I completely forgot about it. Again.
Until only a few moments ago when I happened to be browsing through Tumblr. I suddenly saw a photo from the Con which showed the large screen displaying some artwork, and mine was one of the two that had been chosen to demonstrate the display.

I'm terribly chuffed with this I have to say.

Anyway, here's the photo, courtesy of whoever took it at BBC Enterprises.…
Mine's on the right. The one with my name.

Yours sculptures are one of my biggest inspirations, I Love how you get so much expression in them.
And of course I love all the doctor who ones because I am such a big fan of the series!
frasierdalek Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Goodness me thats very kind of you to say! 
I try to get real life into them, otherwise they're just dead likenesses.
Doctor Who is something that really inspires me because the actors who have played the Doctor all have such peculiar expressive faces. They are all a complete pleasure to sculpt.
