no previous part Part 1 of Casting from an original carving series Part 2: Rubber mold inside the vessel »

Years ago I showed you the molding and casting process of a roof bear.

Many newbies have since joined and I am wondering if anyone would like to follow the molding and casting process of my carved gourd from it’s present to the bronze foundry?

If not, that’s okay but it has started now so I just thought I’d ask for some of you who wrote to me saying you were entering the same world of casting from your originals.

This series will also be on my Facebook page for any of my FB friends.

Jordan,

A question for you: Is your molding and casting process of the roof bear still available somewhere?

Okay then, I think that’s good enough for me. I’ll be posting first pictures shortly and Lightweightlady, I have no clue where it is – I have since changed computers and have somehow misplaced it.
