Making Small Figures Two
And the work continues, or maybe my making small figures two is just for pleasure! Anyway there is indeed more progress and more figures are nearing completion. I have two Sentinels, two completed Walkers, and another Walker under way.
There are all too many projects going in my studio currently. In addition to the Walkers & Sentinels, I am using the same sturdy material (Apoxie Sculpt) to make low relief casts of the individual “angels” in the mold of my “Mediation” piece. This is so much easier than building dams around the figures to cast them in clear resin! And the results have wonderful detail and can be mounted into/onto almost anything!
I have wanted these casts of my two favorite angels from this piece all along, as these two are the primary figures in the original interaction/mediation. The middle figure, the mediator, stands back in the center of the original work. I have not been quite satisfied with that figure. I may be able to use the mold of this center figure then modify it. Stand by to see if I can create a mediator that I like better!
But really the two powerful outside figures can interact on their own in a very interesting and satisfying way in the right context. I love the piece I have with these two figures in clear resin, mounted on acrylic; it works well for me. That piece is shown below. May I love the one I plan to create with the metallic tinted opaque figures also!
