This is a mixed media piece that has been floating in my mind since the first IronMan Movie. First I created the mosaic pieces. The Face, chest piece, and abdomen are all stained glass on wood. The grout was painted to get the correct color. The hands are mosaiced with stained glass as well, however for each hand, I took rubber gloves and filled them with plaster of paris. Once the plaster hardened the rubber was cut off and then the palm was drilled out to allow for lighting. Both hands, face, and chest piece, have a LED light in them that light up the eyes, repulsors and chest plate. My son and I took apart roughly 10 computers, printers, and other electronical devices to get all the mother boards and computer components. These pieces where then screwed to plywood, that measures about 3 feet by 2&1/2 feet.

kymedicinemanThe plan is to get about 15-20 pieces and go to Comic-Con in San Diego.... Everything is for sale.

FirielUm... WOW.
Normally you would have me at stained glass, anyway. But parts that light up? Dissected bits of electronic devices?
*hugs your muse*

HoodieI can't even imagine how much work went into this. It's absolutely amazing. Will you be posting more pictures? I'd love to see the hand close-up.
