Forever ago I posted some pics of the prototype of my Gneeling Gnome:
I like this sculpt more than the first one. He looks much angrier:
Shortly after I finished the sculpt, I set about making the rubber jacket mold:
Since the original standing gnome rifleman didn't sell very well on eBay, I decided not to waste time finishing the mold. It's been sitting on top of a cabinet in the workshop ever since.
More recently, I've opened my Etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/thorssoli) and it turns out I've sold a few. Enough to justify finishing up a second one at any rate.
So on Tuesday I finally went ahead and started work on the mothermold:
Then on Wednesday I pulled the sculpt out of the mold and poured the first copy:
The lump of green and white on the right is the original sculpt. They don't tend to survive being removed from the mold.
Now I just need a few gallons of casting resin so I can start production proper. So go to my Etsy shop and buy some gnomes so I can afford to keep going...
