New Three Inch Tiles

None of these are new designs, but they are all new to the three inch size. Shown above is the 3"x3" butterfly alongside the 2"x2" and 4"x4" butterflies (with my hand in the picture for scale.) Below are all of the new three inch tiles grouped together:

Here is a bit of the process of making them:

Above is the frog, right after I finished sculpting it. Below is the bat. A customer saw the bat at this phase on my instagram account and told me, "that is one happy bat!" He was not wrong! The bat looks happier in this slightly larger size. Bigger smile, I guess.

The plasticine proofs went into the mold form, to get a plaster bath...

The molds turned out nice and crisp; no bubbles!
