These are the first results of the two new pug molds I finished yesterday. I cast these this evening and they turned out true to their molds. Always a relief.
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.
