09 Plaster Production Molds Nº 192
The oil-clay build-up fits over the carving wax upper leg pattern with about a 1/8th of an inch gap all around. I made this build-up somewhat thicker than I usually do. I've been thinking about how to work around the wild parting line. I think I will just follow the parting line, building up when it goes high, and carving away when it goes low. I also considered doing some work on the carving wax pattern, using the wax pen, then redrawing the parting line. Depending on how this comes out, I may still have to do that? I am figuring it out as I go along. I am bound to make some mistakes. If I do make a mistake, I can stop and fix it. Click on the image to enlarge it.
