Pushing My Envelope!

Here is my new Keeshond dog tile bas-relief sculpture, a shot of the resin test cast from the urethane mold:
This represents a little milestone for me because this sculpture is my first departure from my horses-only “career”! Later this year I want to sculpt a “3-D” Keeshond, and this was a nice confidence-building baby-step.

It will look a lot more like the breed when painted realistically of course! And I hope that depending on the color painted, this might just squeak by as a Pomeranian, American Eskimo, and a few other spitz-type dog breeds. It would be nice to be able to widen the market for this tile in that way!

When I get back from vacation, I will begin the trials and tribulations of learning pressed-tile casting!
