And BTW

Just a note to my subscribers. I am not a huge fan of Mac products. I have both PC and Mac and find them both equally annoying.

The last post I sent out has spelling errors and typos I watched this iPad do as I write. I type much and it turns it into mush. The word mush. WTF? It caps words that shouldn’t be. Puts periods in odd places and it I don’t proof read I’m screwed.

So the last post in your email box is messed up but if you actually visit and read it from the blog it is corrected…always.

Molds and Deadpool

Got the head mold open for the Iron Giant and the jaw mold first halve opened ready for the second side today.

Got Dedpool back up and off the floor and with the help of Karl Soto and Sameria got it pointed up, balanced and symmetrical . Sometimes it take three eyes on a sculpt like this. Then Sameria took over to start refining. We should finish today which means a mold next week.

The mask mold will produce two items. One a nice display mask for the home or office as it will have the material texture in the clay thanks to Karl’s great idea of using burlap to impress the texture in the clay. We tried it and it worked.

The second item will be a poly foam casting that will have much of the face area cut away and the entire thing covered with the actual fabric.

In addition to that the eye sections will be cut out and re molded in alginate, a positive cast from it in 1630, then tooled as a vacuum form buck to make removeable eye sections as in the originals. They will be cast in clear, painted black and held in with magnets. The eyes will stay clear and covered with White mesh.

An undertaking but the way we like it!
