I tore the rubber mold of the big sitting pug around the tail. I made some repairs and then a test casting to see if they worked. They did, but I was impatient and tired when I took this one out of the mold and snapped his foot. So now he sits outside, foot glued back on, and soaks up today’s rain. I like how the statues that are left unpainted and not sealed change appearance with the weather. Black and white photo to match today’s sky.
One of the members of a FB pug group asked me about a door knocker. I gave it some thought and this is what I came up with yesterday. It needs to be painted, of course, but I wanted to test it out before committing all the time to painting it. He’s very solid, and loud, a little louder than in the video.
The washer side of the hinge is cast inside the pug’s head.
