Severed 'Bot Head

A heavily weathered severed war robot head made as a gift for a fellow collector of Ashley Wood's ThreeA toys. Bot heads are a recurring theme in Wood's work and ThreeA have produced several both as stand-alone art pieces and for display as props and accessories for the figures.

This head was not intended to directly represent any of Wood's designs, just to fit the feel of them. It was made mainly from found plastic items augmented with Milliput. The face plate was cut from styrene and bolted into place. The eye tubes were turned from aluminium on my lathe. The white 'war paint' was based on the recipient's Mexican Day of the Dead sugar skull tattoo. The weathering was acheived using multiple layers of acrylic paint and washes.
