Cross to Bear
An arrangement that may become more permanent:
I don’t know where this new variant cast draped worker will alight, but I really like him. He is not quite so sharply white (and clear) seen in “real life”, but a little bit softer. I rubbed just a touch of iridescent / pearlescent pigment on the mold in the draped clothing area. I left the figure’s head, hands, and feet clear, and I like the result. When I make “replicas” using molds, I make each casting a bit different, to avoid boredom!
Rubbing pigment into the silicone mold instead of tinting the resin lets me color specific areas, and retain a bit of translucency if I am careful. The pigment is still securely embedded in the resin, and will not rub off.
I have already forgotten how I acquired these lovely rusted old square nails: probably from a found drawer, or other piece of furniture. I will spray a clear coat sealer to protect this perfect finish!
