Today I finally got to begin the mold for the new little piece. Seeing the first thin layer of silicone brushed on a sculpture is usually very exciting. It unifies forms and smooths transitions in a very pleasing way. I think my goal is to make a sculpture that looks that good before the rubber is brushed on. This particular silicone has more translucency than the products I typically use and I'm a little disappointed the effect isn't stronger.
