Medal Disaster Again

20151102_104135433_iOS

After sculpting the owl side of my medal again I was finally ready to make my silicone moulds but when I was pushing the medal into the plasticine it completely snapped in half again and is now unusable. This means I won’t be able to do any waxes before the formative assessment and I will have to sculpt the owl for a third time now. I have decided to make it larger as I plan on firing it before the casting to hopefully strengthen it. I will most likely also make another out of plasticine while I wait for it to be fired just so I have a back up piece in case anything else goes wrong.
