No. 3 — Owl Casting Progress

Here be the progress. 3 owls out of one mold... not terrible. At this point, however, I have determined that new materials are needed. Plaster of Paris is all chalky and brittle (again, a situation where you get what you pay for... have I taught myself nothing?!) and this Moulage stuff is too flexible and doesn't last long. An upgrade is in the works.

One thing that does rock socks, though, is the enamel colors I picked. They are so rich! Mmmmm...enamel colors...

Next order of business: figure out how they will hang on a wall. Back to the hardware store. On that note, I think I may be falling in love with the hardware store...lately we've been spending a lot of time together.
