Steve's Paipo layout. Nose from Zildjian cymbal tail from Liddle-Somebody's had too much to think!
Numbers cut from sprue and cleaned up with minimal metal chasing and hand filing (props Manuel)-preserving all the original wax texture, junction details etc. Next is getting threads tapped and brass hang rods attached-then patina and Ready For The House.
The wax house numbers gated and in shell stage at the foundry-the first layers of shell are super fine and painted on to pick up all the detail, subsequent layers are dipped to form a thick casing which is fired, melting out the wax and producing an empty mold for the bronze pour.
Our almost famous triple team yard sale is happening again this Sunday with extra loot from 2 household moves-call it necessary editing!....this time it's back in Highland Park all details on craigslist here.
*This chap went straight for the grey felt stetson last time, it looked great on him, I hope it's getting some sun.
