Abba Fold Xev Tin $60. This is a “one of” because I have not been able to replicate the technique. Using the abalone fold technique, folding colors one way and then another I fell across this effect.
This is the link on how to create the abalone fold technique: http://www.norajean.com/Biz-Archive/Faux/abalone/FoldClay/Group-thms.htm
The face was from a Xev mold. Xev is a character from the Canadian SciFi TV series LEXX and I used the characters to learn and teach sculpting, with the permission of the late Lex Gigeroff, one of the founders of the series.
I realized I didn’t have pictures of Xev and Kai face molds on my website and right now my search function on my website is acting wonky. So I dug out the sculpted faces and the molds made from them for a quick picture.
How this Abba Fold Xev tin was made: Sculpt the face, make a mold of the face, do abba fold to the clay, insert the abba fold clay into the face mold and fill with back fill clay and release the face from the mold, cover the tin with the abba fold sheet, add the molded face to the tin, make the edges pretty. Heat set, add a finish, and there ya go. That’s why this costs $60.
