    This is one of the prototype airbrush desk stands I am working on. I have maybe a day or two left in mold making to pull them off without having to do any additional machine work to fit them together. At least I have all my master pieces completed.

    I purchased a 1/4 scale skull as reference, that looks like it was probably a 3d scan that was reduced - super detailed. I then did a sculpt from "monster clay", a wax like clay that softens with mild heat. This one is about 1/6th, I would guess. Molds are made from food grade silicone, and I am using two different resins for casting. I aged the off-white casting of the skull with Createx illustration colors.

    I told my wife a Skull would be perfect for these, and tried to explain that EVERY airbrusher has to paint at least 1... she had a hard time grasping the concept ;)

    yeah, Gerald has me outnumbered, but I am constantly working on it ;). These stands have come about out of my desire to try to get my collection organized, and into a display case rather than file cabinet drawers. There are a few more things I have in mind, but - all in time.
