the sculpture exhibition that I am in is opening on July 12th. I am casting the first plaster mold of one of the faces right now, and I cut the box JUST too shallow so there is probably about a quarter of an inch between the tip of the nose and the top of the plaster - meanwhile, I’m thinking about all of the extra plaster between the top of the head and the wall of the box/the edge of the chin and the wall of the box. I guess I’ll reenforce that after it sets. Also the only appropriately sized shipping tubes that I could find for casting are smaller than I’d intended and I am going to have to cast them solid rather than hollow - which may work to my advantage in terms of figuring out supporting the base. This way I will have to have some sort of foot/base slab, and I won’t waste time attempting to dig some poor form of a post hole.
These are things I should have though about before I submitted the proposal, but it’s probably better for me. Use my brain rapid fire again. Get shit done. Stop being lazy. Stop being lazy. Stop being lazy. Stop being lazy. I’d rather be unable to sleep than be exhausted and passed out all of the time.
