Code:

In regards to those asking about making copies of this model I have put a poll at the top of this page for voting to see how much interest there is for making a mould.
I'd like to know if there is enough demand for this model that would make it practical for me to mould it.Please let me know if you're interested!

It´s such a great art of work! I would be very proud having one in my collection too!

I still prefer the idea of getting asian elephants and african forest elephants by you, but this one just knocks me off,...

Thanks for the comments. Unfortunately I have some bad news regarding the moulds for the elephant. As this was my first time attempting moulds it did not turn out well, the mould was a failure. My original ended up getting cracked on all legs and the trunk, I will have to go in a patch up the broken sculpture and repair what is remaining....but it can be saved.

Unfortunately this means no copies will be made and this will just be a one piece item again. I apologize for those who were looking forward to this piece for purchase.

Maybe you could make a joined project with Anna, her husband works with moulds very well...

Oh! what a pity! Sad
Making moulds is not an easy think. When I started to make them I received an important help from Anna. Also time ago I met some people in Barcelona who works sculpting (not animals) but they know a lot about mould making. Maybe in your city there's also some people who have knowledge about this. To see from an expert the way to make moulds is a really good thing.
Maybe you can make some attempts with pieces you don't going to use, to improve your moulding skills.

Yes it is a bit of a disappointment, I may look into some mould making classes if there are any in my area....it is a skill which takes practice and experience to do well. Luckily I'm glad that my original was not completely destroyed with this experiment.
