Over at the Replica Prop Forums that I also belong to, I was lucky enough to obtain a couple cool monster castings made by Howard Studios. With the monster fans round these here parts, I thought I would share.
To see more of Howards fine work, visit:
Received a couple busts for Father's Day (Way to go Wife!).
Bride of Frankenstein and Wolfman.
I just did some clean-up on em today since it was nice weather.
Trimmed all flashing and cleaned out their noses, ears, eyes and hair.
Used an air grinder to knock off the big flashing...used my dremil with various bits to do the fine work. Went back over with some sandpaper in the ears and a good strong brush for the hairlines.
I'd love to paint em...but I'd hate to ruin em. The plan is to get some plaster pillars and make displays for the movie room. Since they're hollow, it is a neat effect to put a light bulb inside for slight illumination.
I took a pic of Frankie next to my Portumac Vader lid to give you a size comparision.
See all the pics I took at :
