FRED GWYNNE FACE CASTING

Updated: April 18, 2015

Fred Gwynne Life Mask:

Fred Gwynne (1926 - 1993 ) The gentle giant, he was a great straight actor, author and artist. But I like him best as TV's funnyman from the 60's. Do we ever laugh outloud watching TV like we did for the Phill Silvers Show, Car 54, and the Munsters? That was great stuff and the expresive rubber face and comedic manner that sold it was Fred Gwynne. He is truly a giant!

This started with an actual life cast mask of per. Then it has been sculpturaly enhanced by me Erick Erickson. The Hair styled like Francis Muldoon, ears and eye brows have been added to create a very life like display.

All of the original detail of the historic cast has been preserved. So the work of art you get has a direct link to Fred Gwynne. It's like having him right there with you.

I am a fan and do what I do with love that you can see in the final work of art. I watched 8 episodes of Car 54 while I sculpted to further infuse the spirit of Fred Gwynne.

The finnished piece is cast in USG's Tuf-Cal gypsum cement, it is fiber filled and has polymer additves to assure it will last forever. It measures a giant 13" High X 7.5" Wide X 7" Deep. It is aproximatly 7 pounds unpacked. It is finished in Silver Screen Silver then rubbed with an antiquing overlay to bring out the detail.

The piece is then sealed with a clear coat to preserve the finish. Each mask comes with hanging instructions and the screw.

Value: $150.
