Breaking the Mold
Ralph broke open the mold a couple of days ago. The first half came off beautifully, but the second was a bit of a bear. We think it's because Ralph had to use a different polyester resin for the second half and something in the chemistry of that brand of resin reacted oddly to the silicon which made it want to hold on to the mold being casted. However, we got it off and it's perfect. I can't wait to see what's in store once he casts the sculpture from this new mold. Here are some process pictures from this weekend, enjoy!
