The work in Idaho has been real crappy for a while. I have decided to start this new business and get back to what I believe I am supposed to do, and that is be an artist. I love the construction industry and I have never been so excited about anything I have ever done in my career! I am looking very forward to this new venture!
I will be posting pics soon. I have been very busy getting everything in order lately, been working on a couple carvings. I cant wait till I get a little more efficient at carving. I think I am spending to much time on each stone??????
Talk to you soon
Thanks for the comments.I have not really thought about selling the castings at this time.I am just working and experimenting with different materials to see what works. I made the mold with some liquid latex and brushed it on the original piece in numerous layers.I think it was about 23 to 25 layers.It is a time consuming process but its fun to play around with.I was just trying to come up with something unique and creative.
I checked out your photos of the fireplace you did.It looks great!You seem to be catching on really fast!Best of luck to you!
Hope we can do another class with Thom and Jody again
You got skills
Dion, it was a pleasure talking to you today. Thank you for taking the time. I appreciate your insight and honesty. Talk to you soon.
