When I want to experiment with a new color mix, I cast a head. The head on the far right is the one I cast today. I’m interested to see what it’ll look like in the rain. I could seal it, which would darken it, but it would always look the same, wet or dry, and not show any weathering.
I tried out the new cement on the new “pug head tilt” molds last night. After 90 minutes I was able to take them out of the mold. The Portland cement took at least 4 days. I had trouble getting to sleep because I just kept thinking about fast curing cement and which mold to do next. Never in my life would I have thought I’d be this excited about cement. Then today the newly cast pugs decide to take a trip to Easter Island.
