How We Built A Weathervane, Part Six

This is the sixth installment of the making of the Belle Isle Aquarium weathervane. We left off the last time with the plaster molds and will continue with that. Below are the  next steps that were taken with the making of said plaster molds.

This one of the pectoral fins.

Applying the plaster for the second half.

All of the fins after the plaster has dried and the clay is being removed.

Cleaning up the plaster mold of the dorsal fin.

The other half of the dorsal fin.

The wood box has been removed and the gar halves are ready to be separated. 

Separation complete and the clean up is needed.

The other half before the clay was removed. 

One half all cleaned up.
