First cast

I have begin casting this panel now, this one is for a client who plans an Art Deco bedroom.

The panel was cast today and will take a few days to dry out, then it will get the bright gold finish which I think will look best.

The color of the panel as shown is with special base tint added to the casting material so that the color is completely through the entire panel.

Using a base color like this under the gold (or another color under one of my other finishes) serves two purposes, one is it tends to deepen the final finish color, the other is, should the unforseen accident occur someday of a chip on a corner, or scratch, with the substrait color being close to the finishes’ color, the damage won’t stand out like a sore thumb as it otherwise could.
