Jessica Rabbit Trail Mix Up by TrevorGrove Jessica Rabbit Trail Mix Up by TrevorGrove
My third and final little version of Jessica Rabbit. These were such fun to work on, I just kept rolling into the next version of the sculpt as I finished the last. I love the animated Roger Rabbit shorts, and always wished there had been more.

Remember, only you can prevent forest fires....and ALWAYS bring your high heels when you go out hiking. :)

Sculpted in wax, cast into resin and painted in acrylic. More photos here: www.deviantart.com/trevorgrove…

What kind of primer are you using? I usually go with Aztec. Do you find sometimes smooth surfaces for cartoon characters need a bit of post sanding for 'micro scratches' for better adhesion? I usually use a 340-400 grit.
Painting broad, smooth, glossy surfaces, always makes me nervous. :oops:

(And remember to clear an area of at least ten feet in diameter. CampfireOnly you can prevent forest fires. Camp Fire )

You know, my first real experiences trying to do super smooth characters was a "Breaking Bad" cartoon project my brother and I embarked on years back. I about went crazy sanding and priming literally hundreds of parts (At the time I just used Krylon) and then sanding again to make sure everything was smooth on multiple copies of the sculptures....It was rough and messy.

Now what I do is spray the sculpture with an acrylic matte clear coat, and after that dries I hit it with some Testor's Dullcote to give it some tooth. It's a life saver! Now I can just sand the piece ONCE! WHEW..... I've been considering making a limited run of each of these tiny Jessicas, so it's more appealing to think I can get by only having to sand things once on each copy.

When I start painting, though, I embrace some brush strokes showing up. I paint everything with very thin coats by small brush. If anything builds up too much I sand it down, but mostly I like for that hand-made quality to show in the final work. That's not something most people want, I guess, but I'm resistant to "perfection"... When looking close at things, I LOVE to see the process.

Thanks for the tip about Aztec, I'm going to look into that brand.

A bit flirtatious for a children's cartoon character, huh?

Thanks for asking! This is just a project I did on my own. I wish a company would make a new statue series of her, I'd love to be part of it.
