Baphomet is a devil type god once worshiped by the Knights Templar. He is a bit scary. The god is a winged human figure with the head and feet of a goat. In the picture below I am attaching one part of his tail to his body. The pine cones are not related. I also […]
This category shows how I cast bronze figurines, bronze sculptures, and other bronze curios. These are my Work-In-Progress postings.
I have been remiss in posting new work. This WIP for Baphomet is lengthy as it encompasses about 6 months of work. In March 2021 I began to cast another PKKing sculpture “Baphomet” that I purchased in 2012. This is the second PKKing sculpture that I will cast in bronze. This work is much larger […]
I decided to build one more “Faerie on Twig”. I think this sculpture is somewhat unique. I had previously cast an organic twig as the post for this sculpture and I had thought to mount this faerie on another amethyst like my last edition of this work. However, my last two sculptures were mounted on […]
The sculpture is now mostly complete. I still need to attach a few decorations to the figures and properly clean the work and apply a patina to the bronze. I plan to use liver of sulphur, ferric nitrate, and cupric nitrate chemicals to apply various browns, blacks, red, and green colours to the main piece. […]
Some of the remaining ribbon parts that attach to the base have been cast. After about 6 months of contemplation I have finally decided to cast the base of this sculpture in bronze. I made urethane rubber moulds of the clear resin parts so as to replicate them in wax. Everything except for the large […]
Now that I have cast the main body for Yan Wu it is time to create the flowing ribbons that descend from the back of the figure. These parts are large. I struggled to decide how to economically mould and cast these pieces. I considered sand casting but in the end I decided to mould […]
This posting shows pictures for some of the casting and construction for this sculpture.
I find that I now want to do sculptures of far more substance and complexity. My work is changing. I do not expect to cast superheros or other such bronze in the future. I am now starting a new sculpture based on Yan Wu by PKKing. This work should be a spectacular bronze piece. According […]
I now have a functioning water wheel with water. A few still pictures of the operating water wheel follow. The water pump was put into one end of a reservoir fashioned from 1 1/4 inch ABS pipe. The reservoir hold about 350 ml or 1 and a half cups of water. The pump fills the […]
I am beginning to assemble the water mechanism for the water wheel. The water reservoir will sit underneath the mine office. This reservoir will contain a submerged pump driven by the battery and electronics in the office that will pump water into the water tower. The water will come out of the tower at the […]
