Casting in concrete is fun. I hung these up yesterday. It will be interesting to see how they weather and age.
The ears on the sculptures I made my most recent molds from turned out to be too fragile when casting. I kept snapping off ears when removing them from the mold. Very frustrating. So I re-sculpted the ears and have just poured new molds on two, and I’m waiting on delivery for more Oomoo 30 on Sunday to pour the third.
I’m experimenting with smaller sized sculptures. This pug is a mock up for a mold. I’ve yet to do the finish work smoothing out the tool marks because I might make some changes. I also might try casting them in concrete and staining them instead of casting in plaster and painting them. That is why I’ve sculpted the pupil in the eye already. If made out of concrete they could be garden pugs.
