Re: My first public monument!!
Racine, this will be cast using the Lost wax method. Ceramic shell molds. Pretty typical for most foundries. I'll be molding the full scale piece in silicone and taking the molds to the foundry for them to pour their waxes. It'll be cast in many parts and welded back together.
There's been some last minute changes from the client last night, so I'm going to be held up another week, making the changes and then cleaning up the sculpt. Should get it to the enlarging folks in a little over a week.
More pictures to come later.
