The concrete lion head is finished – at least the concrete part. I’ll probably add some sort of final finish to it after it’s fully cured.
The first one had a lot of air bubbles on the surface, so I made a second one with a thinner mix of Quikwall. Next time, I’ll try sculpting directly over an armature that’s made just like the ones I make for paper mache, but with a plywood pattern instead of cardboard. Stay tuned!
Also, I was wondering what you all think of me starting a Kickstarter campaign to help me buy a better camera for these videos – one with an external mic so the noise problem would go away. (I taped a rather long segment for this video out in my back yard, because I thought it would get me away from the traffic noise at the front of the house. When I checked the video, all I could hear was the whooshing noise from the wind. The only part I could keep was the few seconds at the beginning. Dang – what a colossal waste of time! It’s really starting to take the fun out of making these videos.)
If you think a Kickstarted campaign is a good idea, what do you think it would it take to bribe people to contribute? Or do you just think it’s a silly idea? Let me know in the comment section.
