So Perry, what's the plan for this wicked sculpt? Ceramic pendant? It's too small for a mug and WAAAAAY too big to cast in gold

here he is in two states. mike, this is why i make a wax piece to carve. i don't work as well in clay. it may be different for some people, but this is the best way for me. one of the most valuable tools i've acquired as an artist, i think, is patience.

it's the one thing i have in common with doctors. (ba dum dum)

I think that's one of the reasons I'll never be an artist

Looks great! So now you can make multiple wax casts but you have to hand detail every one? Or will you now make a mold from the detailed wax cast? Could you skip the clay and sculpt in wax to begin with?

Keep up the great work Perry, I'm anxious to see what the final product is.

the final sculpt will go back into silicone to make a mold. i'll pull one resin piece out and then make wax casting pieces. you can sculpt right into the wax, in fact, a lot of people do that. i find it easier to do the big stuff in clay. the tooling wax can be brittle.


thanks, woofmutt.

here's the orongo with a final polish. you can't see the patina, though. now only about 6 more of these guys to do.

Pdrake, cool watching your casting process.
All of your little carved treasures are great.
