removing casts, cleaning, assembling and casting

A large part of the day was spent removing the casts I poured yesterday from their moulds, cleaning the moulds and then re-assembling the moulds. It is a very time-consuming and tedious task, with no quick alternative. These are the casts that were created

In order to get a sense of the colour balance and to judge how many more casts are required to fill the shelves, I moved all the casts for the shelves into the shelves. Some do not fit perfectly, so will need to be sanded, but it gave me a good idea of how many are still required and what colours I need to make more casts.

The majority of the new casts were either uni-colour or a limited number of colours so as to balance the shelves as they are currently very 'busy'.

 I then re-filled all the moulds with pla ster to make more casts of both floor tiles and casts for the shelves. Again, I focused on using a minimal number of layers to create simpler forms.
