The Dimension of Creature Creation
There is a lot of experimentation in the "rot shop". Usually a prop starts out as a clay concept then a mold is made and a foam cast is pulled. Now the fun begins as textures and details are added. The early method was using paper mache which was good in dry places.Now a new method is used which looks great providing very high detail and is weather proof.
Inspiration comes from nature and everyday life. Scenes such as gnarled old trees, a forgotten car left to rot in a field and abandoned buildings stir the imagination. Nature provides colors and textures while places and events create possible stories and creatures from another dimension
