Travis Mullins has been creating monsters for 17 years. Taking everyday objects and turning them into monsters by using super Sculpey, foams, epoxy, hot glue, acrylic paint and latex. He also loves pizza and gives the best hugs.
His first “monster mouth” creation was a killer tomato for a tomato festival. This idea blossomed into what it is today. Turning anything into a monster.
The process always varies from project to project, but here is one. Start by finding an everyday object, decide what would be the best way to transform it into a monster. Then tear an opening in it for the mouth part to fit. Engineering the object using wire, foil filler, and weights if needed so that it will stay a solid sculpture. Sculpt the mouth and whatever else is needed for the piece. Attach it all together using hot glue and finished with acrylic paints. There is no set time frame to make the art piece. It depends on the piece. From 8 hours for some sculptures to sometimes months for puppets and masks. ~ Travis Mullins Art
