Yellow Brick Toad

This was inspired by the Wizard of Oz and is a toad that looks and feels like a brick yet is slimy and soft. 

 

He screams when stepped on due to there being a squeaker inside him. 

 

Sculpted in Monster clay, moulded in silicone and F1 carbon paste (as a fibreglassing alternative), cast in Plastsil gel backed with shrimp gravel and filled with pillow foam. I then carved out a space for the squeaker to go which I glued in place and then it was ready to be painted.
