New Sculpt I just finished

LEARNING THROUGH FAILURE


A New Day
cute little Deers
make me smile
despite a complete failure with my molds
the weather, the plaster
who knows?
Back to the drawing board
taking a short break from mold making
than I will create a new piece to cast
with every failure
I learn a lot
