Had a busy weekend on this and figured I'd start a new thread as its not going as planned. Maybe admin can move my first post over here from "What did you do..." Anyway, got the first unicorns filleted with toilet ring wax.
Whipped up the Green Bay Packers logo foamies. The left is right off the hot wire and the middle is hand sanded with 100 grit to get the high spots then 180 for finish.
Mudded them all up.
Rethought the unicorn foamies. Adding slugs on the feet, tail and horn to help fill.
First casting of 3 foamies not so good for unicorns and oval.
Cut the sprue off the other 2 unicorns and replaced individually with white foam in 2 postures. Added runners to the oval and added a second "G".
Still short on the unicorns.
I have 2 unicorn foamies left so think I need to feed the tail, legs and horn directly with some extra runners and stick with the horizontal posture, though the bottom side leaked somewhere. Any other suggestions are welcome. Also contemplating a plan B. My grand niece also likes dolphins which would be easier to cast. But I'd really like to get one of these unicorns right. On the Packers logo the plan is to polish the face and back of both pieces and paint the edge of the "G" green and the oval yellow. Then drill a small hole and suspend the G in the oval with fishing line like a mobile.
