Trying so hard to organize an exhibition at the moment but I am now having to face the fact that I don't really know what I'm doing and that many of my artists will not complete their piece by the deadline.
I really find it hard to place trust in other people or attempt to rely on them. I have already extended the deadline and moved the exhibition back twice.
I really wish I had never started it. It's a shame, I was so excited about it to begin with... *sigh*
I am working on some smaller castings at the moment which are unexplored territory for me.
I don't know many artists who cast on a small scale so I have no real point of reference, I have been reading up on casting techniques in the hope that I can inform my own practice as much as possible before delving in at the deep end!
So far I have made gel-flex (a re-meltable rubber) moulds of some objects, some originally sculpted and some found objects, which I intend to cast in wax to made lost-wax moulds from. Some of these moulds are not filling up to the finer points (tails, ears, etc) with wax when I try to cast them so I may have to sculpt
