Lights on the Horizon

Sailing at night there are always dim lights on the horizon.

I’ve applied to the wonderful Riverside Arts Market as a sculptor of foam. The board on the left is part of my portfolio.

It’s a 5′ 6″ traditional fish with hand foiled wooden keels. The color process is pigment dyed resin versus the modern technique of paint on foam.  Resin tints are extremely difficult to achieve and the depth of color is unparalleled.

Tomorrow I’ll sand the entire board several times and follow with a heavy gloss coat. 

The board will need to cure for several days and be polished to a brilliant shine.
