Jolly Roger Coaster Work in Progress: Part 5, SCULPT COMPLETE!!!


Ladies and scalawags, I can finally call this one done! I'll be making the mold soon and cast the first pulls and see what happens. I'll be casting them in black resin and give it a weathered wash to look like old iron.

Jolly Roger Coaster Work in Progress: Part 4


Almost there! I decided against doing a rope pattern around the perimeter of the coaster and opt instead for a wood pattern. Like most projects I work on, they always evolve in the end.

Jolly Roger Coaster Work in Progress: Part 3


The pirate themed coaster is finally coming around. The perimeter will eventually have a rope pattern going around it (the indents you see on the upper right were from pressing down on a separate coiled element I was test fitting). The wooden planks will have nail heads also. Pretty excited about how it's turning out. Can't wait to do resin casts of it.

Drink up, me hearties!
