The first mold experiment.

I've just finished making my first mold! I bought a 1 lb. silicone rubber mold kit and a bucket of 'super strong' plaster of paris. I've made a bout 6 Gummie medallions so far.

Chicken Knight

Sculpting on the Chicken Knight is complete! He's made out of coathanger wire, aluminum foil, thin wire, Sculpey and Apoxy sculpt. I'm very pleased with how he came out! Next is the Swan Queen. I've got the wire maquette half finished and as soon as I get more aluminum foil, I can start putting clay on.

Castle Walls

I've finished the castle walls and tapestries that will decorate them. Of course, the stained glass still needs to be installed, but that will come later. I've started sculpting the chicken knight too. My apologies for not posting in a while, but with two jobs and an Arizona vacation trip, it's been hard to do anything else. If you'd like a sense of scale, these walls are roughly 2ft. x 2ft. The chicken knight is being sculpted at about six inches tall.
