Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!
Brad/Grum grew up loving the earlier Tim Burton films and his work has definitely been influenced by him over the years, planting a seed of the macabre in the mind, so when the Grums (the self chosen name of his collectors and followers) asked him to make a Beetlejuice Grum for this years Halloween release he was a little bit overjoyed, why hadn’t he done this before?
Brad set about sculpting the piece by absolutely destroying one of the blanks, tearing away the hood to make way for Beetlejuices crazy hair, before letting the epoxy clay dry and beginning the painting process. Utilising layers of acrylic, inkwash and Culture Hustles Black 2.0 to bring the little dude to life, before getting the quintessential layers of varnish down to protect the careful paintjob, all in all around 7-8 hours of sculpting and painting to bring him out of the deadworld he usually inhabits, even though it would be easier to say his name 3 times to summon him.

About the Beetlejuice Grum Reapur
Each Grum is handcast by artist Brad Rumble in polyurethane resin, a similar substance to that which they make car bumpers out of, so that means its incredibly durable and resistant to high heat (seriously, he tried melting one as an experiment and it didn’t even scorch). They are all handpainted from a blank white base, primed in a grey airbrush primer, then varnished using Montana Gold premium spray varnish, then signed and numbered on the bottom.
Each Grum is handcrafted carefully and lovingly made to the highest of standards in the highest quality materials.
This is a collectors item for ages 14 and up.
Please note these are made to order and will ship in 15-21 business days, this allows for the materials to cure properly.
