Molding Finished... First Resin Cast

I was able to finish the molding process and make a cast in resin. Thanks to the help of Mike Call , he is a super talented sculptor and friend.

Tomorrow I am off work and I am going to drive to Baer Bronze  to have the door knocker cast in bronze. I am very excited.

The above picture is the resin cast painted to resemble bronze. It gives you a bit of an idea of what it will look like. There is always the options of other patinas. I will have to see what my friend chooses to do.

End of Summer

I can't believe summer has come to an end! This summer seemed to go by so fast. It has been a great summer and it's hard to see it come to an end. 

I was able to spend a part of labor day weekend with family and friends up at the Midway sheepdog competition. My oldest son had gone to them previous years and had commented how much fun they were. I never really expected it to be fun, and I was very surprised at the event. 

It was a lovely day and the weather was near perfect to sit and watch the talented dogs and handlers. I look forward to enjoying it again next year.
