So push moulding is pretty awesome. I have had a khorne symbol mould ready for a while but I never used it. Following on from last weeks fun with the Templeguard shields I decided to use it. Again I applied some olive oil to lubricate the mould. I don't know it this is needed but I don't want to find out that it is by having a mould ruined before I have really gotten much use out of it. This mould is much smaller in volume than the shield and I had far too much green stuff mixed. Unpreturbed I put the stuff in with a lot of over spill. After a day drying I was able to remove it easily. I had to trim a lot off around the edges which with the odd angles present wasn't the easiest job. The piece in the middle, the nose I guess, is still there just to illustrate this. However I can now go ahead with my plan of using this symbol on some armour for Chaos Ogres... well if I ever get back to that project.
