The good...the molds came out nicely. But molds usually do. I've been using the actual object that I molded to give the backside of the piece a mirror image design.
|This came from a mold of an African gold weight. This is the front side.|
|Back. I like that it's not perfect. And is has my fingerprints on it.|
|Another gold weight mold|
|The one on the right shows the back side.|
|This came from a mold I made in a Holly Gage class. This is from an ancient coin. It's the head of Apollo.|
The ugly....well..I love the shape, love the texture and love the faux rivets. But....the texture is too shallow and some of the faux rivets fell off. I am going to try to attach and refire them. If that doesn't work I will drill out the spots and add real rivets...maybe with some screws to make it different.
Well...back to the drawing board. I am going to etch new sheets so I can get a deeper texture.
