Pink Floyd Cold Casting Project

The Division Bell has always been one of Jon's favourite Pink Floyd albums, and his girlfriends father is a big fan as well, so for his birthday Jon decided to make him a miniature version of the metal heads shown in the cover artwork.

Jon 3D modelled a basic version of one of the heads and 3D printed it. He then sanded it to within an inch of its life and made a 2-part junk mould before casting it with the Xencast P2 Fast Cast Polyurethane Casting Resin.

" I like the Xencast P2 because I am horribly impatient, and it cures really fast." said Jon and once he had the initial casting he sanded it again to remove any of the print lines that were visible on the cast part and then using some needle files scribed in the panel lines.

Jon didn't include the panel lines in the original 3D model as they would not have come out well when it was printed and would have been nearly impossible to remove the print lines from. The next step was to create a new two part mould and this time Jon mixed aluminium powder and black pigment into the resin.

Once cured the head was de-moulded and buffed using wire wool to bring out the metallic shine. Jon then gave it a wash of black acrylic paint to fill in the panel lines and give more dimension and definition.

The finishing touches were added with a 3D printed eye, a second cast to make the pair and finally a string of beads onto a wire and suspended it between the open mouths, and mounted the heads onto a wooden base.

This was Jon's first attempt at cold-casting and we're sure you'll agree it's amazing!
