The casting of the ‘Maximus’ horse skull with Florence Bigglestone (@floss_art) continues, safely and with social distancing…
Part 1: Molds of Florence’s filligree designs are made in latex, and then reinforced with layers of plaster. Casting begins in plaster on the lower jaw mold.
Part 2: Test casts are taken of Florence’s filligree designs, with gold leaf added.
Part 3: Casting of the full skull continues, and the caps start to be joined together.
Part 4: Once the caps have been joined and cast, de-molding begins. Here, Florence can be seen chipping away the scrim that reinforces the joiner’s dogs.
Stay tuned for the next part of the mold making process!
