Ocelot griffins by Reptangle Ocelot griffins by Reptangle
These are two of the cart full of ocelot griffins I just finished. These will be sold in our online store, not ebay.
Trying to decide on an eye color!

These are gypsum reproductions of my original sculpture produced by Windstone Editions [link]

I love your griffins so much. I gotta have one some day. :love: Reminds me of when you had a shop at the Maplewood Mall. I loved going there when I was little.

Yeah, we used to sell these all over the place. The recession knocked the wind out of many of the gift stores we sold to, and they had to close. We are still at it though, 30 years later! We sell mostly online now.
 Thank you so much!

How long does a sculpture like this take you to create minus painting of course. This is awesome.

What gets me are the times when a word suddenly goes all alien on me. Like, I'll be typing along and suddenly, a perfectly ordinary word like "omelet" will become unfamiliar, and even though I do recognize it, it just doesn't look right. It happens to my husband too....

they are very beautiful! i hope to buy one someday (after i finish collecting the dragon statues, i have 3 so far :D). i think the brown eyes on the griffin look the most natural :)

Ah, these are *stunning* I am greatly looking forward to getting one, and hoping you decide on beige eyes! (or get Pam to make that metallic beige color for them, they'd look SO pretty with that!)

Thank you for making such a stunning batch as LP! For the moment this is likely the only way I will be able to afford one of your beautifully detailed male Griffs! and the ocelot pattern just makes feel all warm and fuzzy! :D

What do you paint and seal your sculptures with, if I may ask? I'm making some sculptures and it'd be nice to know what works.

((I really like these btw, the blue one is my favorite, it contrasts well with the neutral tones in it's fur.))

It depends what material you are using.
If your sculptures are cast gypsum ( plaster) or ceramic, acrylic paint works well with a Hydrocote or any clear acrylic sealer over it( NOT a solvent based finish)
If your sculpture is made of polymer clay... use a finish that is made specifically for polymers, or you may end up with a sticky mess! I've done that!

Well i use super sculpey, a ceramic-like baking clay. I have some artist acrylics and some of those folkart enamels. As for sealers i have Krylon Uv-resistant clear acrylic coating and a brush on gloss glaze.

Don't use any solvent based paint on sculpey without testing it on a piece first.
I had a sculpture get all disgusting and sticky from doing that. I think acrylics and water based paints are safe to use, but I am not an expert on painting sculpey pieces. I only paint gypsum stuff.

Casting my vote for the periwinkle. Are these going to be limited editions?
Reply
:iconreptangle:
Reptangle Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
No, these will be what we call "limited production". There isn't a finite number of them, we may make more from time to time, but there will never be a huge number of them because they are fancy .

I associate gold eyes with griffins personally. Though if you want to shoot for a happy medium, use the gold eyes and give them TOUCHES of blue. You've seen how some eyes have other colors. Like a light ring of color around the pupil, or flecks of color in the iris. It might put a little more life to their eyes. Beautiful work!

the periwinkle does go with the feather spots. the brown I don't actually care for as much, I feel a lighter amber might work better. but then again, it's hard to say what they look like in person! :)

Took me a while to figure out that it was not a compilation of one griffin. These are just too cool! I imagine they must be a pain to paint though, with all those ocelot spots.

I also like the amber eyes better. They just feel more natural.

Now all I need to do is win the lottery so I can grab one for myself! XD

I agree with ~roseredautumn the blue does work with the metalic spots on his wings, though the golden eyes are beautiful as well, that brings out the warm tones in his pelt.

Think the blue is just a little more mystical though :)
