Hello all! For the month of October,I’m posting about a special project I just finished up. Every year I’m commissioned to create a Halloween prop for a local business, Fire and Safety Equipment Company, located in Concord, VA. The company sets up Halloween decorations for their annual event, and this year they wanted something a bit more unusual.
I’ve just put the final touches on my first life size gargoyle! Originally I designed it to go on the roof of the business but after showing it to the owners, they decided it would make a great Photo Op and asked me to make a pedestal for it to go on. This piece measures around 9 ft tall when its put together!
I made the gargoyle from Styrofoam and applied a hard shell coating to protect it. I then used a paint technique to give it that old weathered and creepy look!
I’m pleased with how this piece turned out and I had so much fun creating it, I may have to make another one soon 🙂
