revitalized ventriloquist figure
Casting from the old mold. Attached ears and back of the head.
( Previously the molds were set up that the head and trap door
were separate. this created more work when fitting the trap door
as - since the figure sports a bald head - a smooth fit is essential)
Next molds will be made of this after more refinements

New molds made from the patched head above

New castings from above molds with jaw and lip in place
head cast in whole and trap door cut from that. Since the figure
is primarily bald a good smooth trap door fit ( and sealed) is essential
