Just in case you wondered what part of the cowl making process looks like...
This is part of a new mold jacket that the silicone rubber gets poured into.
Fun with polyester!!!

Wow, that's the neatest shop I have ever seen! So organized! And the custom made dust control tube is AWESOME! I am stealing that idea somehow.

Do you sculpt here, too? I see no clay or scupting tools...

Thanks so much for sharing!

Chuck,

Please pardon me for taking the liberty of labeling some of the more important items in your photo of your shop, as an aid to those readers unfamiliar with some of the equipment required by a professional artist of your caliber.

You're welcome.

The file cabinets are FULL of model sheets from all sorts of animated films.
