LOL oh I'm not even sure I should post this...

Through the amazing generousity of a wonderful person, I have some molds to play around with - for clay. But during a grout test for the mirror, I had the sudden desire to use my left over grout to see just what comes out of these molds..... mmmmmmmmmmmmm

well, here I am that night looking at several faces and body parts and I begin to run captians through my mind.... so this one made me laugh

here's Poor Veronica

(I swear I will pursue real art with these molds in the future! lol)

RE: Poor Veronica

Well, what have we here????!!! Another side of NT's artistic brain. This is hilarious, and, my dear, IS art. You beat all. I've done the same thing w/molds and left-over grout. I've also used concrete patch in doll face molds, and it works beautifully. Doesn't leave the grainy surface. Sometimes I don't get the air bubbles out of the grout-filled ones. You beat all. I LOVE this very funky, folk artsy piece.

RE: Poor Veronica

Those are cool! A great way to use leftover grout....I always feel bad about throwing it away, I'll keep an eye out for molds.

RE: Poor Veronica

How funny! Such a wonderfully creaqtive idea!! Like slow said, you come up with some of the most ingenious things! How'd you get them out of the mold...did one mold release work best? Love the saying, as well as how you set up the piece!

RE: Poor Veronica

Wow I can't believe you can use grout in those molds, they turned out perfect. I really like everything about this piece. Reminds of things I see in a store here with all funky stuff.

RE: Poor Veronica

Enjoying this again. Forgot to ask what your substrate is, what's the background glass and the border tiles. 'splain, please. A real fun piece, to be sure. Where you hanging it?


 o
RE: Poor Veronica

Curb, I just used cooking spray for release. And these are known as push molds - they are flexible so popping the pieces out is alot dumping out an ice cube tray.

Slow, the substrate was just some left over plywood from the shrine project, I kilzed it. Black waterglass for background, orange swirrly glass for border and a chartruse green on the edges to match the lettering and of course, Veronica! lol

Ronnie... I completely forgot that I "know" a Veronica, I'm so glad you have a sense of humor!

RE: Poor Veronica

TDF!!! (too dang funny!)

RE: Poor Veronica

Enjoying this again, as SLOW said.

How could I NOT like this?? (Ok, I guess I can see how I might not, but fact is, I DO! :) I keep thinking about printing it to show the guys at work, then I think, "Nahhhh. Not a good idea."

RE: Poor Veronica
