I have all 3 molds for this design completed, the largest one- for the griffins’ body is still drying it’s plaster support shell. Soon I will order the black resin needed and can make a couple of test casts. I calculated it will take 7 quarts to fill the body mold and 1-2 quarts for the wings, the resin is not inexpensive!
I have all 3 molds for this design completed now, the last one is drying out, soon I’ll order the black resin to pour a couple of test castings. I calculated it will take 7 quarts to fill the griffin’s body mold and 1-2 quarts for the wings.
The 2nd wing mold is now finished, and ready to start the mold for the body of the griffin himself.
With the plaster model inside the box built for this, it will have to be embedded halfway with clay and the first half of the rubber portion brushed on with multiple applications, and a plaster shell poured over that. Once the plaster hardens, the box and the clay gets removed and the second half of the rubber mold brushed on, the sides of the box get strapped together to surround the sides, and the 2nd half of the plaster mold made.
The box is about 28″ long, 9″ deep, 14″ wide.
