01 Jan 08
Today was a productive day on the mold. This morning, I prepared the underlying surface of the butterfly panels and had a dam built around it by noon. Next, I mixed and poured a 2part polyurethane foam onto the surface inside the dam. This foam expanded and cured into a hard material that carves easily and precisely. I spent the next couple of hours grinding and cleaning up the surface and started a coat of body filler on top of it. With another day like this tomorrow, I could finish the 2nd butterfly panel, which would really be awesome. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
