Probably like most sculptors when the
casts come in I'm aghast at them: nooooo, all my work ruined.
Scrub them up then remove the
powder/mold release agent however and they begin to grow on you. Glue
them together and give them a black wash and they start to take shape
(I missed some major mold lines in my haste, grrrr).
One flaw on these – the Synaxarion is
missing a thumb on his right hand, broken off during mold making.
This is a major no go as far as I'm concerned... if I was trying to
run a commercial business. I'm not though... but I will need to
reduce and price on them to compensate.
