It is not like where I take Karloff's face and build up the makeup to recreate the Frankenstein monster I could not use my Sculpting skills to add anything. I got the cast of the Water creature and found it very cool at first but noticed it was collapsed and in some areas the detail was completely missing because the rubber had shrunk and Rotted. I first had to restore the size and shape of the head while preserving the all authentic skin detail. After succeeding with this I recreated the missing detail from studio stills. The Original Makeup was supervised by Bud Westmore. I then added the mouth and eye detail seen on the land Creature makeup. The result is A Creature that LIVES. I hope you enjoy it as well. I watched the Creature from the Black Lagoon while I sculpted to further infuse the spirit of the Creature. I do this every time I sculpt to really live it. The finished piece is cast in USG's gypsum cement, to assure it will last forever.
The piece is Life Size. It measures 15" High X 11.75" Wide X 8 Deep. It is flat on the back for wall hanging. Or it is flat on the bottom and can stand freely.
It is about 15 pounds packed. It is finished in Silver Screen Silver then rubbed with an antiquing overlay to bring out the detail. The piece is then sealed with a clear coat to preserve the finish. Each Head comes with hanging instructions and the screw. This mask is one of a LIMITED EDITION signed and numbered by me Erick Erickson the artist. Thank you for your interest in my work. Your satisfaction is 100% Guaranteed.
