Cast Metal Cat-Themed Chess Set (Teaser)

I think I mentioned before that Nefarious and I are working on a chess set. She sculpted the figures (although I helped by doing detailing like carving the hair texture) and I made silicone molds and have been casting the black side in pewter which I have treated with a dark patina, and the white side in clear glass-like polyurethane plastic. I wanted to quickly share how the figures are looking right now. They have not yet been cleaned up so they look a bit “rusted” and the plastic hasn’t been trimmed. I am thrilled with how the metal ones look especially, and they feel great in your hand too with a nice heft (about a half pound each I think).

P.S. I hope it amuses you that the bishop (left one in the bottom row) is the “fish”-op. Har har.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
