Vague Monkey Toys

These pieces were originally born as a result of a brief project done in my spare time at college. I made a simple robot out of offcuts of chemiwood and really enjoyed the process, so I made a series of several different designs and characters from a modular set of interchangeable parts. 

I also made the rockets mainly as a turning project, but also to give me something to sculpt as I wanted to have them appearing to be taking off and held up by the rocket trail. 

All pieces were moulded in silicone in two part moulds, and cast in polyeurethane resin before being prepared, primed and painted with acrylics.
