I go to functions in the building every so often. I will make a point to take a camera. It is a wall 70 feet long. Amazing to see. No different than what you have made. The detail is shocking to me. You are good! Can't say that enough!

Re: drywall sculpture


though i've not seen his work i can appreciate how difficult it would be to do objects with straight lines,circulars,very little room for error,if lines are off you're drawn to it immediately.

It was the auto correct on the website. I spelt it without the U but then it had a squiggly red line under it....
and I don't like squiggly red lines. It makes my text look incomplete; because I know something's wrong. Even though in this case it really wasn't.

Depends which search engine you use, if fire fox, go settings/content/language. Default is American, you can change to canuck, kiwi, etc

Internet explorer has no spell check, just ask the captain

That's why I use fire fox, Cappeen isa bedder speltter dan mee

Re: drywall sculpture


Hey mitch ! Here's the hall at the Moose Lodge in my neighbourhood. I'm doing some work there and thought that maybe I could try and liven up that wall a little bit.

One of our senior members who is a great guy and asset to this organization has been with the Moose Lodge for 63 years and this September he will be Pilgrimized in this hall. A pretty big deal for him ! This means that there will be hundreds of high ranking members attending as well as the Grand Pooba who lives somewhere in the States. If I can make his day any better, I'm sure this will do it ! And I couldn't think of a better wall to show off on !

It would have, of course, a sculpted life size moose or maybe just a little smaller above the stage. I'm sure something would look good on either end as well. The wall is almost 100' long and 14-16' high.

I'm really anxious to see you put a video together explaining your process. I hope you really do get around to making one ! I've shown your pics to many people and most of them start to drool. I'm pretty sure I could make a living just doing these.

I think your work is some of the coolest sh1t I've ever seen in the drywall world. Freaking awesome ! Yep !

Re: drywall sculpture


mudslinger,i was looking at moose lodge international site ,front page has good detailed features of the moose you're looking for.right paddle shows inside cup,left paddle shows outside of the cup,it'll help give it good perspective when you're only applying 3" of materialin heavier bulk areas.

Re: drywall sculpture


Is this the page your referring to ? Very nice detail on this image. http://www.mooseintl.org/public/default.asp

Three inches ? Wow ! Kinda like sculpting mashed potatoes. Should be fun !

If you happen to make it up here before the end of next week(Fridayish) I'd be more than happy to meet with you. Buzz,ping,text or call me at 252-MUDD. I'm sure you know the area code. Heading out of town then for another camp job. I missed you last time you were here and I hope I don't lose another opportunity. Otherwise I'll have to book you a flight and room when you have a spare weekend.

Re: drywall sculpture


Is going over a painted surface ok ? Or would you scratch it up a bit ? Seems with all the weight of mud it might just slide down the wall when dry.
