Today the horse Head has been encased in plaster to create a two piece mould. I cut the ears off and made a separate mould just for them.
Next anxious moment will be tomorrow as I gently prize the two parts of the mould apart without breakage.
Thus releasing the clay design and the head beneath. Quite a hefty one this, will be glad when it is apart.
The removal of the clay and the plaster head will lighten the load considerably.
