And off I went again on a fantasy subject. I meant to do a wildlife related one, but you know how it is.
Roughing it out:
Under plaster! Eek. Always the scary part.
The finished mold!
I always have leftover plaster, so I ran outside and snipped a piece of the cypress tree off, pressed it into clay, and then readied the clay for the pouring. Sure enough, I had a little extra, so on it went. Now I have a lovely little extra mold for sprigs, etc. :)
