Inspired by my painting "Jacked" and the mythological "Jackalope", this sculpture attempts to blend my character design with the classic taxidermic presentation of the Jackalope (stuffed and mounted on a plaque).
Till its release, I'll be regularly presenting images of Fully Visual's process for casting the bronze.
A ceramic slurry is mixed from which a mold (or as they say in the biz, an "investment") is created around the wax. After the wax forms are dipped in slurry, they're coated with a layer sand/silica, allowed to dry, and the process is repeated several times. The finished product is a hard ceramic shell that forms around the wax. Later, these investments will be heated in a kiln and the wax will be melted out.
The finished investments will serve as a mold for the molten bronze.
