“All At Once” is how Roostaurs like to enter the scene. His appearance means that Peter’s silicon mold worked out, and the plaster mother-mold as well- mostly. He is formed by hand lay-up of Hydrostone backed with hemp fiber, both sides of the mold done separately, then fitted and joined. When he is finished up I’ll pull a good straight figure of Peter and re-do an Elizabeth with her ball (the others broke in the move from KC)- as the Hemp/Hydrostone is impressive in strength-to-weight ratio, as well as simplicity-to-loss-of-sanity (of hydrocal and plaster bandage) ratio. Books on tape from the library help mitigate the process-malaise, and the higher ratio of success with the new materials helps as well. But all that is for December. Now it is all about the Roostaur and a certain little Public Art model that he figures prominently in, thrice. I’ll post the maquette for the Public Art idea soon- it is done, but I’m still deciding how done…maybe just a few more minutes simmering in the art cooker.

Peter’s vivisection went much smoother with freshly baked pumpkin spice cookies from Elizabeth. Igor used to make a mean doughnut to fuel Dr. Frankenstein’s reanimation experiments. Abby Normal brains aside, if ol’ Humpy had tried the Pumpkin Spice cookie instead…well… not pictured are the cookies after their sugar glaze- so the truly miraculous cookibility must be left to your imagination. But not the viscera. The dismembered remains of Peter must be shown for full ghoulish benefit. Happy Halloween.
