To make the miniature sculpture of Reckless (maquette) with her tack and ammo, I had a resin replica poured out of the same mold the foundry used to cast the naked version of Reckless. The resin is hard and will not gouge or mar during the sculpting of the delicate straps and buckles. I used a combination of wooden dowel and brass tubing for the canisters. The dowel fit perfectly inside the tube and allowed me to taper and contour the end caps. -Sgt Reckless- The Making of the Monument - SSGT RECKLESS-The making of her monument(There are over 100 photos on this page through her unveiling)
