Howdy ya'll! Been missing Charleston since I started working on this again.
Finished making the complete mold for the doors of the gate.
I really like the idea of it having a carved stone appearance so
I'm going to try to cast them in plaster.
And yes, I have never done a plaster cast so I can't wait to see what will happen.
If anyone has any recommendations of types of plaster to use I'd love to hear about it.
I know I will have to do a bit of chiseling and carving
after I cast it due to the mold not being perfect
but at least I have a well established design.
And it's square which makes me very happy!
Here's a pic:
It will measure about 4" x 3.5" .
Next, working on the top half of the gate
which holds the lantern!
Thanks to everyone who's been keeping up
with my mad experimenting!
Hope it's not been too boring.
Be well all!
