First Try at the Badge

8/28/00 The First Try at the Badge

After some shipping problems, I finally received a cast created by Mike at Seaport Mold. It wasn’t exactly what I wanted, but it was a good start. There seems to be a sizing problem, where the cast has come out too large. The overall length has grown by about 3/4″, and the the letters have also gotten thicker. They look a little like what happens when you make chocolate chip cookies. Mike and I will have to work on the process from “camera ready art” to final zinc casting to find out what needs to be adjusted. I may have to adjust my artwork to allow this process to work well.

Whenever I hit another stumbling block, I always tell myself, “persistence and dedication will see me through this restoration!”
