Finishing up the Form

In order to eliminate as much additional finishing as possible on the cast part, as well as to aid in the mold creation, I decided I should smooth out the ridges that were created as a result of using multiple layers building the form.

Using wood filler, I filled in the transitions between layers and also some gaps left during the initial glue up.

After drying, it was sanded smooth and shellacked.  The form, not me.... (Okay, I probably was a little shellacked at the time too.)

Hopefully, this will make forming the mold much easier as well as prevent a lot of finish work on the casting.
