Finally getting to the molding process of two of the Falcarius claws collected at the Crystal Geyser Quarry. Reconstructed the missing tip on one and added just a smidgeon at the end of the other to complete it. Looking good so far. We’ll see in 24 hours how the molding material set up and get to pouring the other side. Then on to the casting.
The field expedition to the Mussentuchit and the Crystal Geyser Quarry in Utah was a success. Sometimes spending three weeks together with the same small group of people can be questionable. One person can ruin the entire mood. This was not one of those trips and I am happy to say that many specimens were collected and brought safely back to the museum for preparation.
The first task was to determine which specimens should be placed at the top of the preparation list. The three unguals collected at the crystal geyser quarry were selected as highest priority. One of them will be molded and cast as a thank you to our rockethub feulers.
