The Original Sculpture
The original sculpture taking form...once finished, a high grade silicon mould was taken.
After the mould has been cast...
Next (much to Greebo's chagrin) they go into a hot, sudsy bath, to remove dust and any wax release used in the molds. This is also when sculptor Lyn Marie Nueunfeldt goes over every inch to make sure details are perfect before moving on.
To make sure that every eye "glitters with the sins of angels", each sculpture features a hand blown glass eye with a custom infusion of gold leaf powder and liquid clay, and is hand set by Lyn, making every piece unique.
The Sanding Process & Kirby Estate Seal
Preparing the back of the sculpture for the insertion of the Kirby Estate Seal Coin (with help from Lyn's mum - also a master woodworker).
