Manticore / Lamassu – The first cast

February 08, 2011 2 min read

Here it is! Below are pictures of the very first Manticore / Lamassu resin casts. Maybe it feels the same for you, but as for us, when we see the actual casts as opposed to the 3D renders, it always look a slightly bit more powerful and beautiful than the 3D renders.

The process for creating this piece has been quite a challenging task for our master caster, as he explored radically new ways of creating moulds and doing the casting. Inevitably, doing such experimental stuff pushed him over schedule, but we can assure you that the results are worth it. He showed us pictures of the process (which we are no allowed to divulge), although we can tell you that it opens up brilliant new possibilities for our future projects in the coming months…

But once again, we have to push out the delivery dates out for a few days. However, this time, our master caster is the one who will do the explaining, as we will get an interview out of him in which he will talk to you directly about his work. He tells us that he expects to have the production moulds ready by the end of the week, and the first 50 casts out in the middle of next week, barring any problems.

As usual, we will keep you updated via this blog. Meanwhile, we haven't been idle. Check out our next blog entry on the release of Asharah Anniversary Edition, in stock now!
