Some things are not like riding a bicycle, and casting is one of them, at least for not me. Generally speaking, the little guy is cute according to my wife, to me he's ok... Good enough for government work, so to speak (just a saying, definitely no implications intended.).
So, it's going to be back to the drawing board for another attempt. This little fellow is not for the slight at heart, he weighs a solid 25 grams, all sterling silver except the tiny copper wings in the back that are less than a gram each. His eyes are 2 dark grey, cubic zirconia faceted stones.
He could probably use some dieting as well, as he is about 5cm thick.
We're going to put him up for sale in hopes he can find a nice loving home while I work on the next rendition which I suspect will be, lighter and thinner and cuter.
