The Odd Side the Pattern is pushed into to its intricate halfway points is blu tac ! :-D
I moulded the Monk type pose too.

Image

The Soap & Silicone Method for tiny double sided moulds. All is needed is one mitts in there to form a ball and push it into the mould while still wet with the soap and water. Working it over the Pattern in such a way as to allow the air to escape then top up and push pat it down. No need to pound it.

All made to stand the test of time as ancient statues on fantasy buildings.
So no need to be pristine copies.

Upon seeing in my minds eye an opportunity of changing the above bookcase into something that i could use as a prop, i obtained it on E Bay and made a rather flimsy rubber mould using it as a pattern.
I have long been writing of a certain person well over a year now on my blog. He lives in a huge Georgian house overlooking one of the great ship yards of London on old Mother Thames. The white washed house of many secrets was built in 1776, and at that time served to accommodate high ranking Naval Officers above the rank of Post Captain. It was then quite a splendid place,but in 1899 the year my story opens it was somewhat grubby and rundown. However it housed a great Library of leather bound books.

Image

This is Percy above who i must paint soon. He will be my first figure this year.

It was often said that Percy was very forgetful in his old age, and would often get lost even about the house,but he prized his study that housed his book collections that covered up every wall within that room. Even the door had a bookcase fixed upon it ,and when closed from within,it was often hard for Percy to find again,as each wall was completely covered up and over from floor to ceiling with bound volumes and cupboards holding many an official secret.

Image

I need to paint a few books,but i believe the book shelf served its purpose quite well. BB
