The first silicone cast for Brown Bunny’s head is out of the mold. Not the final draft, for reasons outlined below, but it feels like progress anyway. And progress feels good.
The most immediately apparent flaw with this cast is the right ear — I skinned the inside of the mold with a layer of silicone before filling in the full cast, but it looks like the two halves didn’t connect at that point. That sort of flaw might be able to be fixed with some painted on silicone; worth a shot anyway.
The problem that ensures a new cast will need to be made is that, again, the facial control wires didn’t end up close enough to the surface to be especially useful. Time to try something else.
