Son of Return of the Cryptomolds

No sooner than I hit the "Publish" button, new photos arrive and and are made! This is a short addition to the previous post, since there are so many, it would be a ridiculous edit.

Starting with factory colors:

Today, Jayne Kubas brought this unusual A-9. It is a color rather unlike my own shaded Smoke Gray Natural. While the Smoke has a bluish tinge, this new shaded Gray Natural has a warm, almost brown gray, and it is sprayed in a different direction. It is sprayed direct front-to-back, instead of oblique full-body shading.

Left: blue Smoke Natural; right: warm Smoke with direct front shading.

Left: blue (cool tone); right: warm tone

Another Mexican plaster casting copy (marked "MEXICO" on the base front), with a warped face.

Bil-Mar 27" hobby mold in speckle glaze ("fleabit"), custom glazed by unknown.

Hobby mold copy of A-9 in brown art glaze that really shows off how far the detail is from Maureen's original smooth technique. Custom glazed by unknown.

Thank you to Kim for the photo submissions, and a special thank you to Jayne, for the unique addition to my A-9 conga. It fits right in with the others!
