Dental Work

I’m going to miss looking at this head. 

Each of the pieces that make up the entire tiger, must be looked over, cleaned up and modified for making of the molds. I have saved the head for last. I’m actually quite partial to it.  Part of this “modification of mold making is some dental work.  I must cut out the canines to be able to get a better mold.  It is a sacrifice, and in the long run, the only way this thing can come together as a bronze.

Sawing out each canine. They have a piece of metal in them
so a reciprocating saw is required. 
So sad. But it is a part of the process.
