My new molds have produced their first successful castings. The Big Guy and his Little Buddy.
The new pug molds are almost done. Tomorrow will make it 20 coats of latex, then I should let them cure a couple of days before peeling them off the sculptures. And I’ll need to make a plaster cradle for the little one.
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.
The big guy and his little buddy begin the ten day latex mold build. They just got their first coat of liquid latex and will get approximately nineteen more coats. In the photo, the big guy on the left is a plaster casting that I fixed a few things on that caused problems in mold I made of him. He developed a tear around his tail that this new mold hopefully won’t.
I finished the big buy’s little buddy today. I’m letting him sit a bit before I do a final check and start the latex mold making process. Have I missed anything? Fresh eyes are appreciated.
