The Horse Mold

I have a new mold that allows me to make as many of these fabulous winged horses as I want to!
 This horse was not an easy object to create a mold from.  
I had to cut off the brooch pin and really set it flat in my mold container.
 I used our black pigment to colour my EasyCast resin pour.
 Out of the mold, my horse needed a little trim.  I also sanded a few areas.
Then I made a happy mistake.  I wanted to strengthen the tail with an extra glaze layer of resin. I didn't realize I had dropped some resin on my workspace, which cured under my horse and changed my horse winged area.
This resin dollop makes my horse different from the original so I am quite happy to leave it.  A little silver metallic wax highlighted all the detail perfectly.
