I thought some folks might be interested in seeing some of the steps in the mold making process of the “pug head tilt” sculptures I’ve been working one. The blue stuff is a silicone called Oomoo 30. I just poured these and I now have six hours of anticipation with my fingers crossed that no air bubbles are going to mess them up. I’ve realized that air bubbles are the mold maker’s nemesis.
These are the four garden pugs I just listed in my Etsy Shop. They’re cast out of Portland cement and sand and will hold up to all sorts of weather. They have a small hole in the back so they can hang on a nail and be flush with the wall.
