Did I show you this already? Stop me if I did. There is another offering, a boy with an antelope around his neck. The plaster on that one is loaded with shredded currency creating a fuzzy surface. That one is quick painting and no carving to it.
I took this picture to test if my phone would still take one and download one. Surprise! It does. This is the fidelity the 420 rally would allow. It is not so terrible, for a phone. I should stop complaining. But I won't.
Turns out one of my favorite things. A framed copy of this hangs in somebody's home, taking first place of the lot. Everybody asks about it and that makes me squee. It was commissioned by a person I know but it is their spouse who flipped out when the piece was brought home. That was fun. Really fun.
I poured twenty-four more copies and I still own all those. Every detail comes through with those latex mold, every hair, every crack. At first I poured twelve and painted them all green same interior house paint as a room and attached them tile-like to produce a 3-d wall and the whole thing was extraordinary, I thought just what I wanted, then I moved. I poured twelve more and painted those randomly and rapidly and carelessly and those plus the greens making twenty-four made up a new wall at the new place. Then I moved. Now they are all in a box waiting to be used somehow. They can become another wall or they can be framed and sold separately. The mold is destroyed.
But I could make another mold if I want to, I still have this original.
