The Bohemian Ram

Posted on


Hiya, Jules here with another post using the New Finnabair moulds, I pre-cast all of these from resin, that way you are always ready to start.Air dry clay can also be used. 

I started with the ram's head fom the Amun & Bast moulds & a blunt cutting disk I found at a car boot sale for the base - I later added my mdf roman clock to the base so it stood out more. 

Stencil the base and start adding the varous cogs, keys & rusty nails. I alway use the heavy body gel for this, as it's very strong & reasonably fast drying (with a heat gun). Leave overnight if you prefer!


For more stability for the next layer of resin moulds, I added another cog and a wood slice to elevant the ram's head further. I very carefully attached the small wings to the top of its head and added the heart. I love that with these moulds you can mix & match to create all manor of things.


Next came the colours, as there's cracks in the skull I knew I wanted them to be darker in colour, so just mixed burnt sienna & water to flood those areas and let them dry. Use the green & pink mica's I "painted" all the elements and toned them down with a wash of the burnt sienna water mix. Once dry I embellished area's with glitter & sequins and finished with my fav white gold wax and sentiment. 

Tip - try to balance elements, epecially when they stick out from the project. You don't need to use the same thing, for example for the sides I used resin keys and rusty nails.
