First day of sculpting detail

Today it was finally time to begin the sculpting of the train detail inn the Pumpkin Creek RailRoad sign. I used up a whole lot of sculpting epoxy and wore out two popsicle sticks one the first day. Tomorrow, we’ll continue the happy task and by day’s end it should be almost ready for paint. Stay tuned…

Two of a kind

Its a usual thing for projects to run in multiples as we like to keep a common thread through our projects to the things together. The Vala Farm project has many very fancy brackets which help brand the operation in a subtle but very noticeable and classy manner. Today’s brackets are for the apple display in the exit building. They are cut from 1/4” thick plate steel. Underneath the brackets VALA’S APPLES signs will be fastened with smaller types of apple signs hung under those to help guests identify the apples in the display.

Two more trees sculpted

The crew have been very busy during my absence. They sculpted two of the trees for Vala’s farm and they look fabulous! The Pie Barn tree is now ready for paint while the Harvest Barn sign and tree will have Jack the farmer sculpted on top.
