Remember the scene in Jurassic Park when Muldoon discovers the Raptors had broken free from their Pen? This is a 're-creation' of one of those prints seen scattered around the pen that Muldoon started tracking.
I have sculpted it in clay (wet clay) and plan to make a plaster cast soon.
The print itself is around 12". The texture is a kinda wet soil/mud. This would make it easier to match most ground types if painted correctly. I've also made the edges of the plate rough and rounded to make it easier to blend in with surrounding sediments. Let me know what you think?
As you can see, the clay right now is very wet. There's water collected in the dips which will give you an idea of what it could look like in rainy conditions. Once this has dried out a bit, I'll seal it and start molding.
Ok, I have done a quick mold using water based quick-setting alginate (used for life-casting) and have produced 3 plaster copies for painting.
