Ouroboros in Wax

This is a picture of the Ouroboros in wax. It was made from the mold of the clay piece. The next step will be to make another mold of the wax out of a ceramic material.

Ouroboros Mold Making

Took the clay work over to Larry Lugar of Lugar Foundry in Eads. He's the best. This is a picture of the mold making process. The Ouroboros is encased in latex. Then plaster will be applied. After the mold is finished, a wax will be made of the Ouroboros from the mold. Can't wait to share. Read More
