Sneak Peek: Small Scale Wings

Just wanted to share a quick sneak peek of a piece I’m working on for Anvil Industry. This is the two wings of a jet pack like device (as far as I know). What you see here will be split down the middle. The reverse side will be have identical details.

Because I needed to make them as thin and delicate as possible I decided to sculpt in relief form onto a thin piece of plasticard onto which I’d drawn the chosen design. I built up what you see here literally one feather at a time. Although time consuming doing it one at a time it does keep each feather from getting damaged by accident.

I’m pretty sure there will be more of these, done in different wing positions (don’t know that ‘poses’ is the right word in regards to wings). These will be cast in resin and their thinness should allow easy bending in hot water should a customer want to alter the overall shape. That’s the idea anyway.

  • I would love to buy a mold of these (though with the appropriate feather pattern for the flip side) so I could make GS casts with wires integrated into the design so that I could pose these in a more 3d, dynamic style for my BA libbies.

    • I’d love to help you out but I no longer have the originals. I’m not sure when but Joel at Anvil Industries plans to put these up for sale. I’d just keep an eye on his website or send him an email.
