The ghost of wallpaper. Painting over walls I just wallpapered last week just seems a bit weird but it did leave an interesting faint impression of the formerly hung vintage embossed paper on the wall. More adventures in film stuff.

It’s the latest fashion and my latest make. Lots of fun making these “rock” shoes for performance costume, commissioned by @zephyrliddell to go with the crazy gorse eyeballs. Zephyr’s costume is going to look amazing once it’s all put together. Can’t wait to see it all. Latex coated foam shaped around some deck shoes. Trimmed and cut to look like they’ve been chiselled. Particularly pleased with the odd pinking shears cut marks that look like wavy chisel marks. Thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Busy week this week with fun projects. Accoutrements for a costume designed by the ever fabulous @zephyrliddell. One of them was embedded flower resin casts. They worked out satisfactorily. Will be interesting to see how they will look in a week. Always learning new things and will aim to try it out again when I have more time (theoretically). Got some new ideas and materials to work with so that’s always a success in my book. More foam rocks to show you too but not going to spoil you too much all at once.

Now what’s going on here?…Oh, just a little experiment. It’s for a thing. Will it work? Mibbees aye, mibbees no. Certainly hope so! Fresh flowers in resin will most likely rot but when time is not on your side, you have to go with with whatcha got and cross all fingers.😵💫🌹

T’was but 2 years and 5 months ago when I made this superhero model for this Bank of Scotland advert series and last week it finally popped up on a YouTube video. Feels like a lifetime ago. It was my first proper big prop making job and I was stressed out my box over it but it turned out ok in the end. Thanks to Andy Drummond @drummerboy11067179 for giving me the opportunity and for keeping asking me back on jobs. I must be doing something right! If anyone sees it on regular TV let me know! .

It’s an egg.
A joining edge of 2 halves filled and smoothed then painted gold for @lewisjasherlock and his performance cowboy chicken shenanigans.

This week I’ve been mostly figuring out how to wallpaper. Once again, thank gawd for YouTubers! Turns out it’s quite fun…once I got the hang of it #punintended Though only having 3 days to do 2 rooms when one has never wallpapered before, other than helping my dad out about 30 years ago, was an interesting challenge. Baptism of fire…or perhaps Baptism of paste more like.
Everyone seemed very happy and a new tool in the belt for sure but now a quite weekend for me! Thanks to Andy and to Kay and Teenie for their cups of tea, banter and patience.

Finally pics of more projects from last autumn! This was a fun one. “Urlar”. Working with fabulous costume designer, Zephyr Liddell, I did a bit of foamsmithery with shiny, shiny fabric. Photos reposted from Zeph’s Insta, I made the blue Damselfly’s head, shoulders and hip piece. Experimental performance from Guy Veale @logtoad and National Trust for Scotland.

From foam to wood…and a bit more foam…
Right back at it after New Year with a bit of fun puppet wrangling in between…and now a tree…
Yes, this is a tree. A collaboration in the making and not quite fully formed yet. Been an interesting problem solving challenge to use only materials we have lying about. And we do have a lot of bits of wood…
Apart from some new screws and bolts and a bit of fire retardant spray, managing to use up some materials which is excellent as space here is a premium! I’m just making the frame, upon which there will be a beautiful fabric covering. Will post up the finished article when it’s done.
