Kurt Russell as “Snake Plissken"

 

 

Escape from NewYork’s anti hero “Snake Plissken” life size silicone display bust.

After a pose/look/expression was agreed, I went about collecting as many photos of Kurt around his 30’s as I could find. Even with a beard and an eye patch, you still need to know what is meant to be underneath!Next, water based clay was used to block out the head and shoulders over a steel armature. 3 weeks were then spent working on the head, and refining it until I was happy enough with the sculpture, then finished his neck and shoulders of the sculpture. Once finished, the clay was sealed and moulded in fibreglass.

From this, a silicone skinned replica of the sculpture with a fibreglass underskull was produced. Painted with numerous washes to mimic skin, hair was then implantedFor his scalp, eyebrows and lashes, and beard. At this point he looked somewhat like a hobo, so cutting and styling was in order next.Eyes fashioned from Acrylics were then inserted.Lastly, a leather jacket and custom made tank top shirt were added to finish him….oh, and not forgetting his obligatory eye patch!!
