Laura Lee


lauralee.jpg (27882 bytes)    It was a great honor to work with the beautiful Laura Lee. I first discovered her portfolio on the pages of OMP .

In the past, I have added cloth and materials to the finished cast, but in this case, I attempted to cast the model wearing her clothes, so they became a part of the mold. I will say, this is much harder than it sounds. The model had to be cut out of her clothes and they later had to be carefully peeled back from the mold without tearing it.

The golden metallic finish was an experiment I tried, inspired by the beautiful artwork of Brent and Shirley Cairns at Naked Art down in New Zealand.
