Fantastic process. Thank you for the step by step to show just how involved something like this is.

Fantastic design and carving also.

Keep it up.

Jordan, that is a pretty interesting process. I am not sure I would have the patience and perseverence to work through a process like this but it is interesting to see how it is done.

I just love Bruce the bear. ...................very nice carving no matter what the medium. If I put that on the roofof a clients cottage my guess is that it would have a 12 gauge hole in it, in minutes.

Jordan, I’ll have to say, Bruce is pretty awesome. I’m amazed at the detail you’re able to achieve carving with the blue foam. That’s an interesting process and thanks for sharing.

I am really impressed!
It’s the kind of a project usually done in a large shop with several people involved.
To do this on you own is just amazing!

What a great talent!

Really interesting to see how you made this fantastic sculpture/casting. Unfortunately you have have talent to do the sculpturing, so I won’t be trying this anytime soon. I’m sure that some of our members will though, with that great blog and work process documentation.

Hey Jordon ! Great job going from a positive to a negative- then back again.. I have done that process before ( Goldsmithing ).... lol.. but not on such a grand scale… but I was wondering why you used the white foam instead of the pink, as the pink is alot denser… lol.. Like Me
