Rusty Robot Boy


Heres another maquette I produced, this time of  the Rusty Robot Boy:

Rusty Robot Boy

Produced from a mixture of materials including sculpey, das clay, wire, foam, paper and fabric, the Rusty Robot Boy was an experiment to see is it was possible to bring an element of contrast to a figure. On the one hand he is a battered piece of rusty junk, but on the other he has a paper crown and a well loved stuffed toy.

I also went to town on him with painting and attempted to make him look as grotty as possible. A mixture of acrylic paint, inks and scraping with a knife resulted in a rather pleasing effect that I may well use again!

All the best
