Bas Relief Portrait for plaque

Recently received a small (literally!) commission for sculpting a bas relief portrait for a plaque. I started by doing a sketch for the client based from his photo and simulating what it may look like once cast in bronze.

Next I sculpted the small relief using Jmac Classic clay mixed with a bit of wax to make it harder.

Once the client was satisfied I made a rubber block mold using Polytek 74-20 and then poured a wax positive of the low relief and took it to the foundry to be cast in bronze.
