Gal Gadot 4

 

I have essentially finished my Wonder Woman, the Gal Gadot version, with mirror. I am quite pleased with how it has turned out. This work will be called Spiegelbild im Spiegel. The name is a reflection of Spiegel im Spiegel by Arvo Pärt, a simple arpeggio on the piano combined with a slow-moving melody line […]

Gal Gadot 3

 

I have now cast and assembled my sculpture of Wonder Woman that I had created in wax almost a year ago. I used the original wax model I had made. As this wax model is now ‘lost’, as part of the lost wax casting process, I have no plans to do another. This piece will […]

Gal Gadot 2

 

This is the wax model that I made for the Gal Gadot version of Wonder Woman as seen in the recent movies. As my furnace is being rebuilt I can’t make this in bronze right now. So, I will offer this version as a pre-order during the Calgary Expo. I should be able to cast […]

Wonder Woman 2

 

I wanted to have Wonder Woman cast in time for the Calgary Expo at the end of April. Unfortunately, with my furnace having failed I am not likely to have it repaired and back from the manufacturer in time to cast this figurine. However, I can make a wax model of the sculpture. I can […]

Supergirl on Pyrite 1

 

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 […]
