Cast Completed May 26th 2010

Today we put the mould back together, laminating each piece in place.
Once together the cast was left to set thoroughly inside the mould.
Meanwhile the base was removed from its mould.
Once set the mould is removed piece by piece to reveal the cast inside.
The cast is compete...

The next few days will be spent sanding and finishing the surface of the cast in preparation for painting.

Test Piece

The main Droplet piece is ready for casting but for once I am taking the time to do a test piece before commencing with the main cast. I'm intending to cast the piece in fibre glass from a fibre glass mould. Although I've made a number of fibre glass casts before I've never made a fibre glass mould. I feel it only sensible to do a test.
The two part fibre glass mould layered up with the final cast.
Once the two part mould has put together the join must be sealed and laminated inside.

The final cast ready for finishing... it worked!! Now to make the final piece.
