We All Make Mistakes

There are a couple of cast letters put to one side in the workshop. They taunt and irritate me but I thought I would share them.
I've been wondering about casting names into letters and one of the things I've tried are these little alphabet beads.

As you look at them with the letter the right way up, it is upside down on the other side. You have to lay them up into the mold in reverse, so you work from the back.
Among my attempted samples were "TIGGER" and "GOD I'M GOOD" .
Which I laid up like so.

Which, from the front looks like this.
It's one of my funnier mistakes, in that nothing was broken or glued to anything important.  I did manage to make a couple of working examples in  the end.

Lisa in the letter L

Suzanne in the letter S

Olly in an O

We don't know if we will make them available as an option but making them has given us new ideas to try out as well as giving a couple of people a laugh.

  1. Like the idea of a big letter with the name inside, would be good for kids and stuff.


Feel free to give us your thoughts.
