Note the size and scale of the Baryonyx skull, and this is just a teenager!
Baryonyx was identified and added to new discovered dinosaurs in the late 80s. It was a swimmer, wader and eater of mainly fish. Its teeth were discovered mainly scattered about England and were long thought to be from ancient crocodiles. This and the foreleg (up to the shoulder) were commissioned by Travis and Judy Pike in low-relief sculpture. It is 1:1 ratio to a young Baryonyx (45" x 36"). I sculpted the stone over green board with stucco and the Baryonyx is made of MagicSculpt. It is securely bolted to the wall studs which add to its authentic and museum-quality display.
Stone is completed and the dinosaur bone to be sculpted is drawn in pencil
MagicSculpt is applied, shown here. Tinfoil shapes conserves material and helps control finished weight of the wall hanging as well as providing some shape and maintainence of a the desired depth of the sculpting work.
Low-relief sculpture of lower arm of a Baryonyx Dinosaur. Commissioner of this art, Travis Pike, was inspired to have this art created when he discovered the great similarity to the potentially fore runners of his own proud creation, "LongGrin,' which you can learn more about at: www.long-grin.com Sculpture is created on green-board backing, approximately 3'x4', first the rock surface was sculpted and shaped using Quickset motar, then the bones were sculpted using MagicSculpt.
Dried and ready for final surface preparation, painting and top coat.
