gentle whisper 4

just a short note,to keep you updated, and expectation not raise too high… well the cast is kind of glued to the mould, i chiseled all day to get him free at least like this 😦 … i had to be extra careful, as i casted him hollow… geez… but, i think i know “who” the culprit was, why the mould glued to the cast : its the color. when i use uncolored plaster all works fine, but with the acrylic color in it is sticky, and more over it is more like chalk, not good plaster. soo,,, i wont do that again… so need more chiseling to free him. the cast itself seems be good, no airbubbles this time… and,,, a hello to ladner, thanks for the kind words…

i finally decided it is time to mould him, i made a lot of changes. not very dramatic ones, but sublte. most important to me, are the “new eyes”,,, and then i started moulding, and forgot to take a picture of the scuture before starting,,, i mean, just in case the worst happens and all goes wrong, then i would not even have a foto of him… i suddenly remembered that i wanted take foto, and made one, when i had already put the shims to separate front from back… the next foto shows the shells, i made a 3 part mould this time, and they turned out pretty well 🙂 … and last foto shows the clay, after i had pulled it off the shells,,, i am amazed i got him out, with so little damage, he lost his ears (thats ok, they are easy to model) and has some minor damages, which i can easily repair… why ? oh, i would love to try a second casting, with trying a new material… we will see… for now, next is drying the mould completely and then casting in plaster ,,, now, that the original clay is almost intact, i feel much more relaxed to do the casting 🙂
