Shellmen 2017

It’s that time once again, the #shellmen rise! I selected an aged branch from one of my trees, and chopped it into a new set of bases #sculpture #art

Welding

  • Spent some time #welding more scrap steel into the legs and torso of my #DonQuixote commission #sculpture . I need him to be untipoverable before I trust the weight of the cast cement head. It already feels way more solid with the extra rebar in the base. I’m starting to see the silhouette again, and am debating where to cast more cement over him, or leaving the metal frame exposed, or making armor

Head of DonQuixote

Head of #DonQuixote pulled from the mold and given a quick once over. Pretty happy with how he came out, the gears and metal look better than I’d expected. It’s pretty heavy though, and I’m feeling like I may need to reinforce the body frame even more before I even test it out. #art #sculpture

Cement in mold

#cementcasting head of #donquixote is just about ready to putt out of the mold, thinking of hitting it with a wire brush #art #sculpture

Mold prepped

Prepped another #lifecast mold for some #cement casting. This time I filled it with scrap metal, chicken wire and gears, and rather than make it a full block I’ve hollowed out negative space for the head shape. I’m hoping this comes out to be the head of my #DonQuixote #sculpture
