Plaster bas relief dragons. Chipped plaster bas relief dragons. There are about eight of them. In theory, I was going to repair them...but....

There were more to start with. I repaired a few, sold two of them, and gave away some as gifts.

Now, I do not want to get rid of any of my artwork. In fact, I am going to have to make room for more artwork, as my mother is pressuring me to get things out of her house in case she has to move. But where I have these stored now takes up a lot of room. And in theory, I wouldn't need to keep any of them, as I made a mold first, and I should just be able to make lots of dragons.

But, molds do not last forever. And, whatever the art teacher told us, the material we made the molds from did have it's limits. So most of my dragons were damaged coming out of the molds (because undercuts), just mostly in ways that I could fix and that didn't show too much after they were painted. I think that I should take a few of these, add some clay here and there to change them a bit, and then make new molds.

Not that I have any mold making material around, or money to buy any mold stuff at the moment, but that was the idea.

Maybe if I just wrapped them up good they'd be okay in boxes. And then I could use these shelves for something else.

Any other artists out there? Do you keep stuff that isn't perfect? Do you make stuff out of your accidents? What do you do with all your stuff?
