touched_by_ralfie Ok, so I tried a few different things and need you guys' opinion again for the release. I like the simplicity of the bottom right and how it exposes the entire sculpt, but I also don't mind the fixture base and not necessarily screwing the bulb entirely in but, it hovering over the fixture as shown in the top left. Let me know which should be the base to coincide with the #brainbulb #touchedbyralfie #handmade #Brooklyn 2d

touched_by_ralfie Well, first edition of 25 white casts are all done. Now for the pesky base, I think I have something in mind that will look smashing #touchedbyralfie #brainbulb #smoothon #handmade #brain #Brookyn 7d

touched_by_ralfie Which one would be preferred, the base on the left or the base on the right? As easy as it may be to some, it is difficult to pick one appropriate to honor the sculpt; paying attention to size composition and how clean they look together. #brainbulb #touchedbyralfie #brainfart #brain #idea #sculpt #handmade #art 1w
  •   darkcrop Left imo 1w
  •   kieranem As they stand, the left. If the right was smaller and didn't have those indents that distract that'd be better. 1w
  •   quintograph Left, the bulb thread is essential in communicating the design imo :) 1w
  •   chadthx1138 Oh cool! 1w
  •   jvanwouwe Left 1w
  •   lollipopiam @touched_by_ralfie I like the idea of the fixture base but it overwhelms the actual bulb. Something smaller, cracked and broken to reveal parts of the bulb would be cool 1w
  •   touched_by_ralfie @lollipopiam your on to something there. A partial "cracked" or removed portion of the socket insertion would be interesting. 1w
  •   mocap.expert Great idea! You are on the right way! 6d

touched_by_ralfie 6 defected molds, 5 sculpts and a gallon or two of resin needed to achieve one near-perfect mold. Even after much experience, resin and mold making can still be a beast. Always #handmade in #brooklyn ; #touchedbyralfie #brainbulb #limited #smoothon #idea #lightbulb 2w

  •   titonunez7 You've gotten so good congrats 1mon
  •   touched_by_ralfie @titonunez7 it has been a long time has it not? Faded unfortunate past with necessary new beginnings. Thank you for the praise. 1mon
  •   titonunez7 @touched_by_ralfie no prob 1mon
  •   mellow_tonez Wearing a grill?? 1mon
  •   touched_by_ralfie @mellow_tonez lol nah, Washington and a few others never actually had any teeth during the presidency. I was playing with clay here but I'm re sculpting his mouth to resemble no teeth and just gums. 1mon
  •   mellow_tonez Interesting, didn't know that. It's looking really good 1mon
  •   touched_by_ralfie @mellow_tonez Teddy actually had wooden dentures; thank you, but I was just playing around during this phase, realistically the only visible gums would be the top row; the bottom is generally hidden behind your bottom lip since they would only be visible if we literally said "cheese". I have since shaved them down tremendously to be more realistic 😬 1mon
