finished the metal-work on the first cast. there are still some little holes in the surface, but in the end its cast metal, so the surface will never be as perfect as a resin cast. but anyway I am pretty satisfied how it came out. I will make a bronze base for it next week and I will give the figure a nice patina with silver nitrate. I have used it at my last attempt of a bronze alien and it worked out very well. The Silver gives it a grayish color that is rally close to the alien appearance in the movie.

Doh - I missed the Coke. Thanks

Are you going to offer them for sale?

I am not sure about that. Maybe. But if, it will be just a few figures. Maybe I will do 10 slightly different statues but I will keep 2 or 3 myself and another 3 are already reserved by friends of mine. It also depends on the costs for the casting I ll have to pay to the foundry. So a bronze cast is of course much more expensive than resin.
But the whole thing is still at the beginning. I ll have to see how the next figures come out and how the steel teeth will work...

Wow. It's such a beautiful sculpt. Amazing job! I particularly like the use of guitar strings for the ribbed details.

Thanks. It´s actual just wire I wrapped with another using a drill driver. Much cheaper than guitar stings and you can also use the diameter you need. But I thought of using guitar strings and also coils for e-cigarettes when I started sculpting.

Gonna do a run of these guys?

maybe a very small number run, I don´t know if you can call it a run. My plan now is to make around 10 slightly different figures in different poses and some with stainless steel teeth. I will keep 2 by my self and some are reserved for some friends of mine. but its still not clear, how much my costs for the foundry are and. Maybe I ll be able to offer 3 or 5 figures, but as I said, I´ll have to see, how the next figures will come out. still at the beginning.

this time with the steel teeth. I also gave this one a little bit wider stand and shortened the arms a little bit to look more natural.
