Better Homes and Garden

Indiana Jones Makeover for a Channel7’s “Better Homes & Gardens” episode – Sculptor

I’ve always been interested in doing some sculpting – especially ancient masks.  Even better if the brief has something to do with Indiana Jones!!

Had I done any sculpting other than in a digital world before this?  Nope!
Could I resist when Channel7’s “Better Homes & Garden” were calling in to build an “Indiana Jones” themed playground at the Stewart House in CurlCurl that has been an oasis for socially challenged kids in Australia for decades? Double-Nope!!

First we had to sculpt and assemble:
Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 27 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 26 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 01 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 02 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 03
to then color and apply some aging tecniques:
Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 30 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 26 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 19 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 16 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 13 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 11 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 10 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 09 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 08 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 07 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 06 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 15 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 16 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 17 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 18 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 19 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 20 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 21 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 29 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 28 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 25 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 24 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 23 Better Homes And Gardens - Indiana Jones 22

I ended up doing:
– a basic skull face mask
–  wavy patterns
– a sun skully
– a kid’s crystal skull
–  ground filler masks
– tempel ruins
– triangles
– buncha aged walls

Bummer we were in such a rush!!! Could have looked sooooo much better too.
Oh well the kids seemed to like it and that’s what it was all about :).
