I decided to make this king tut wall piece with the extra drywall compound I had I wanted something with gold and a lot of colors not done yet it’s been taking longer then expected because I am trying to put as much tiny details on it as I can will be doing the back of it this week I also once I used jonni clay recipe which is so good I use for all my projects.
I take cement water it down and with a brush do one to two layers of it it’s becomes really strong when finish going to add two flameless candles and one in the middle I have like one more week and should be done. I hope you guys like it I worked really hard on it it’s been a process have few more large pieces I am making for my living room wanted something different. Thank you jonni you inspired me like two years ago I never made anything before. I’ve really learned a lot from you appreciate you. 🙂

Amazing piece! Congrats!!
Thank you ?
Very cool love it.
Thank you !
I love Egyptian art, and this is really noteworthy and wonderful. I love the painting on it. That you used your own body is a big plus in my book. It looks great, and I hope you will show us whatever else you do to it.
I keep two scarabs on my bathroom shelf. They were made from the early Egyptian days. I really love them. Great work.
Thank you very much it’s wild I just had some leftover drywall compound was originally going to be just the head and some how turned into that ha ha but I really appreciate you taking time out ur day to comment on my king tut piece and sure I have few more things I need to do it I have like 6 more projects Iam doing trying to make my living room Egyptian long way to go oh and you have to scarabs that’s so cool
Thank you ?
Edwin, your King Tut sculpture is beautiful. I love all those details! 🙂
What did you use to create the armature?
Hi jonni well what I did was I had a king tut head sculpture I wrapped it plastic wrap and used regular papier-mâché paste and paper did few layers let it dry then covered it in aluminum foil and then went over it with ur clay recipe then I had a friend come over and wrap my body from my chest down in plastic wrap and did the same thing with the paper and paste I then made the papier-mâché clay thinner so he could brush it on attached both together let it dry I did the same with the bird and cobra on the top also what I’ve been doing now Is taking cement watering it down a little and brushing it on a few layers also if you want a piece that u want to go outside. Brush on few layers of cement and then put on a layer or two of cement sealer and u good to go I tried it on a water fall I made with styrofoam and it worked again thank you jonni. U inspire me so much ?
Wow – what great ideas, and so creative! I’m really surprised that you were able to stay still long enough for the paper mache to dry. I hope you had a good book to read. 🙂
Ha ha omg I layed there for so long under a fan it took forever but we’ll worth it thank you I appreciate you jonni
Oh yes jonni what I did also I used pack brown paper I had with a little water down wood glue while I was wrapped with plastic wrap I basically used like everything I had laying around I wanted to use up
Very nice, Edwin. I love that you used your own body for part of it – that makes it very personal to you. Congratulations on your art!
