Supergirl on Pyrite

 

I spent some time a month ago and cast another Supergirl statue. I would like one of these works available for the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo in April, 2018. I am mounting this work on a pyrite stone that I acquired last year. I have also added some quartz crystals to this work. The […]

Supergirl 2

 

I’m almost finished my first version of Supergirl. This one will be colored with cold enamel. My second version that is cast but waiting to be assembled has her cape, boots, and uniform in white bronze. This version will not be colored. The photos show my masking and coloring, for both her blue and red. […]

Supergirl 1

 

I have been working on Supergirl for some time. This is my first WIP for her, although I did post a previous Work-In-Progress for casting her cape. Supergirl has turned out to be a time consuming and perhaps expensive figure to cast. It took almost 4.5 kg of silicone rubber for her moulds. She will […]

Supergirl’s Cape 2

 

I have cleaned up and soldered Supergirl’s cape that was cast in a yellow brass a few days ago. I used my larger Smith acetylene-air torch that gives me 13,000 BTU to heat the two pieces, and fortunately this was sufficient to get the piece locally hot enough (760 C) for my bronze solder to […]

Supergirl’s Cape 1

 

I’ve started work on my bronze cast of Supergirl. The biggest feature to cast is her cape. I am going to have to cut it in half so that it will fit inside my largest 5×7 inch casting flask, but even so it will be a tricky fit. I try to leave about a half […]

Super Cat 2

 

I have two super cats assembled. One is looking forward and one is looking to the side. The head, cape, and body were soldered together in one session but this didn’t really work too well. The parts tended to fall apart during soldering and caused difficulty. I should have used binding wire to hold the […]

Super Cat 1

 

Hi folks. I’m beginning to work on a curiosity known as Streaky, Supergirl’s pet cat. I’ve made silicone rubber moulds of the cat and put it in wax and just recently cast the parts. In the process I discovered that the cat is a little awkward to cast as a complete item as it would […]

Black Widow – Final

 

Hi folks.  I’m back!   I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday and that 2016 will be a fantastic year for everyone!  I thought I would show you what’s on my workbench for this winter.  I have a one day show or sale coming up on March 19 in Kelowna, BC that I […]

Black Widow – Assembly

 

Hi everyone! Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays, or Magic Winter Solstice, or if none of these fit at least have a hot or cold beverage to cheer you up. I have mostly finished all the metal work on my Spy Lady, except for the silver chain around her hips. I haven’t yet decided if I want […]
