The coffin pillar wax injections turned out!
They didn’t really come out of the mold in one piece, but my complicated models rarely do, so it’s business as usual. The waxes require extensive touch ups for casting, but that is always the case with my stuff because of the sheer size. The most important part is that there is no warping of the general form of the pillar, as that was the biggest concern. I am quite relieved now as thisÂ was the most complicated part of the entire coffin project. But who knows, I might come up with something even more complicated to make tomorrow. I’m weird like that.
It’s almost a little bit masochistic: I don’t seem to like a quiet, peaceful, trouble-free existence. I always need to deal with some sort of a problem to feel like my life has meaning. I think I inherited this trait from my parents who are pretty adventurous, cooky couple that also can’t seem to live a simple, uncomplicated life. Like my mom and dad like to say: “First we create our problems, and then we heroically resolve them!”
Unfortunately I won’t have this pillar in time for the opening of the Dragonspace show as my casting techs are too booked up with Olympics coming up, but perhaps half way through I might be able to sneak it in. Don’t know yet.
Lolita’s outfit is finally going up on Ebay auction on February 21st. It took me a long time to bring myself to part with it. Seriously, this time it’s for realz y’all.
ATTENTION CONTEST PARTICIPANTS: Mailing deadline has been extended to March 13th.
And that big news I mentioned earlier is still coming up!
