Rescued and Installed

Here's a shot of the original plaster and burlap test of "Self-Portrait" rescued from the garbage and installed in the ivy behind my in-laws. Nice to see it have a life outside of the studio.

I don't know how long it will last out there, but it will certainly have a longer and happier life than it would have in a landfill.

More Guns

Sometimes the mold looks better than the positive. Case in point.

This mold was made with ancient remnants of the material I used to make the big guy, using polycoat as a mold release. No reason in the world it should have worked, but urethane has a short shelf life, and I didn't want to buy a new mold making kit without more figures on deck. So I risked it.

For some reason there's a lot of guns floating around these days.

Guns made of scrap wood and pvc for the kids.

A blurry Dan Wesson .357 for Mad Meg.

And a work in progress. Meg on the left will be holding the revolver.
