wow, that only took about 12 times longer than anticipated... you're looking at about 70 hours of time cleaning up each wax mold and lovingly placing it on its sprue next to his nathan brethren. 5 nathan styles, 40 per style. 20 each in bronze and aluminum coming soon.
i also stole this old milk cup from out in the barn last weekend. i love this cup, its so beat up and has so much character. its amazing the amount of character that can be injected in an object from years of use. i (as well as my brother, father, and mother) used to use this cup to scoop milk into buckets to feed the calves out in the hutches. 3 cups of milk per calf, and a little warm water until they were weened off of milk on onto grain and hay. i wonder if character found in objects is just some form of mass nostalgia, or if it can be seen in objects sans nostalgia??
