Modelmaking isn’t just messing with Plasticine…

Well Thursday afternoon, it was.

I joined in on a speed sculpting class at Uni with Martin Adamson of ‘The Sculpture Studio’; He has worked on many children’s programs including ‘Igam Ogam’, ‘Little Red Tractor’ & Aardman’s ‘The Pirates’.

The class was based on a job Martin completed when he finished college, which was to fabricate the masters for a project similar to the kinder egg toys.

We had limited material to use, the idea was to consider moulding and casting difficulties and choking hazards.


This sculpt had a 2 ½ hours working time, stands at a height of 10cm
