Reborn monkeys and apes

these are some of the reborn monkeys and apes I have made. These start out as a blank vinyl kit. I add genesis heat set paint and mohair to make the finished monkey.

Like the ooak monkeys, the reborn monkeys have a cloth body with jointed arms and legs.

Ooak macaque monkey

This is a full sized macaque monkey I made. The photos show the work in progress stages. Starting with the masking tape armature that I add the clay to. This monkey has plain black, glass eyes. the clay I used is living doll . The hair is mohair, it is rooted into the wet clay  before it is baked.

Apes, primates and monkeys by Judy Dickinson

It’s a long time since I made a monkey but I’ve been looking through some old photos and decided to share them on here. I call them monkeys but most of my creation were apes. I’ve created chimps, orangutans, gorillas and various small monkeys. Some of my monkeys are reborn monkeys, made from a vinyl kit which is painted and rooted with mohair. Some of the monkeys are sculpted from polymer clay which is rooted with mohair and painted.
I will try and find photos of my monkeys and post them on here.

The following monkeys are all sculpted from polymer clay. I would use wire, tinfoil and masking tape to make an armature that I added the polymer clay to. My favourite clay was living doll clay.
