Making a Silicon Statue

In 2018 the National Space Centre in Leicester ran a 'Space Race Exhibition' as part of their annual Steampunks in Space event. The theme was the Victorian Space Agency and participants created a variety of costumes, models and sculptures with this in mind.

This was my piece and it's a silicon head on a mannequin that I've dressed in various steampunk costume pieces that I've created over the years. The head started life as a chavant oil clay sculpture which I moulded and then cast using Dragon Skin silicon.
