This is a journal of an amateur sculptor of miniatures and his quest to achieve excellence in mould-making and casting of hand crafted knights and medieval figures.

These are some new figures I'm working on, based on French armor in the Hundred Years War. These figures are mainly sculpted in super sculpy, but I have recently started using epoxy putting. As far as getting detail on my figures, its stepped up my game a bit. You can see the arms of the second figure in the foreground. They are attached toward the end of sculpting. Rather than making sockets and casting pieces separately, I am now integrating wires from the arms to act as vents for the mold making process.
