General Lassale in Wagram

Posted by Jaques on 26 Mar 2017, 23:56

Hello friends.
I'm working two jobs and in two different cities, but I'm trying to get back to post my works on the Forum. This figure I made in white metal, inspired by the painting of general Lassale at Wagram. I hope you enjoy.

Great looking figure!

It seems that "everybody" on this forum is now in this Wagram "hype"... ;-)

Dear Jacques,

That Lassale looks nice. I never noticed until now that he holds a pipe on that painting.
Is Mischak right? Is it a conversion? Of which figure?

Hi friends.
Many thanks for the comments.
Yes! The figures that I make are conversions using parts of figures and a lot of putty. I'm not escutor, but the figures I like, after ready, I do white metal for fun.
I'm no camera, the figures are being taken with the phone. Sorry for the quality.

Dear Jacques,

Thank you so much for the additional pictures!
These clarify a lot. This is fascinating.

How did you cast the white metal: just pour it into a mould you made?
Or did you make your own spinning system to get the metal in all those tiny canals?

Fabulous looking figure and instantly recognisable by anyone who's seen the painting.
