In middle earth, dwarves are small. But Imagine sculpting the decorated and detailed cast of the hobbit, at 3 inch scale!
As huge Hobbit fans, we were extremely excited to be asked to create these awesome collectible characters. We embarked on this incredible journey by opting to use our team’s physical sculpting skills, working in a wax medium - a traditional artisan skill that allowed us to develop multiple characters simultaneously. It also meant that the highest level of physical detail could be applied to each character.
Once approved by the studio, the sculpts were tooled in silicone and cast before being painted to give them a realistic cast metal appearance. The finished sculpts have an authentic, hand-crafted feel, befitting of this much-loved fantasy adventure.
