I love being able to offer cast restoration services, and have had the privilege to do a few now. Some casts were years old, stashed away in a closet. Others, like this one, more new. They had decided they wanted to do it themselves at home, but soon realized that the work was more than they thought it would be. I have to give it to them, the casting job was done pretty well! They had the right idea when it came to the reinforcement, but didn’t quite do it right, which is where I came in. There is a lot that goes into each cast that I do, from the initial casting, right through to the end result all decorated. Luckily I was able to fix this cast up, but it took a lot of work, a lot more than I had anticipated. And then there was the painting…. wow did that take a long time, but I absolutely love the way it turned out, probably one of my favorites now. I thought I would share some pictures of the process of this cast, starting with a shot of when it was first dropped off.
If you have a belly cast or bowl in need of some TLC, you can contact me and we can set up a time for a consultation in the new studio!
