My resin didn't set in the mold for my bust. Damnit. I had to peel up wet Bondo and fiberglass, and now my mold needs some serious cleaning before my next casting attempt. Ugh.

My next project focuses on painting- well, experimental painting. Alzaruba prompted me with the question "What is painterly?" and I answered "Carved strokes." So, I'll be painting with a chisel. I've got a rectangle mold ready to pour- I'm mixing plaster with powder pigment and iron oxide to marbleize the color. When I carve into the block, colors and shapes will be revealed like veins through an organ. It's gonna kick ass (if it all works out...)

Wish me luck
