Picked up an Atlantic Molds A104 Christmas tree mold from some old people. Got my bucket of homemade stoneware casting slip all tweaked up and ready, and casted a tree. And a snail.


And I've got a bad idea. One of my friends runs Eurekatec, the shop that designed and built the animatronic face for Woody, the infamous talking Christmas tree:

Also the same shop that did the donair ornament project for me a few years back. They're 3D printing a mold for me, that I'm gonna use to make a plaster mold, to in turn slip cast a Woody face I'm gonna graft onto a tree.

If all goes well it'll go viral again, I'll sell a few, maybe auction one off for the local children's hospital or a food bank or something.

Making a mold, to make a mold, for another attempt at the solo cup.

The wife's been making trees too. Not quite as butpluggy but hey, what can you do.

She's teaching a course this weekend to a bunch of people on how to do it. Running off a bunch of cone shaped jigs on the 3D printer right now that they'll be using.
