He's finished! While visiting one of the ceramic suppliers in the bay area I discovered a mountain of free slip casting molds. I figured I'd look through them and the first one was a cowboy- serendipity!
I went through the rest and now LHS has a healthly supply of slip casting molds. I made sure to make ample modifications to the original casting. He now sports some familiar facial hair, a custom LHS belt buckle, and a whole lot more detail than the mold provides alone. I'll be bringing him to the Livermore Artwalk this weekend!
