Moldmaking and Beer go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly

No, this is not a Philadelphia Brewing Company ad (though it could be...sculptors love beer, right?!) Before Justin started making a waste mold for a student of mine last night, the big question was not "metal shims or clay walls?" (we've done both in the past and are going through a metal shims phase again at the moment) or "casting in Hydrocal or Ultracal?" (the client wants Hydrocal) was "What kind of beer should I get?"...(We decided on the mixed case from Philadelphia Brewing Company...yay for local breweries!) And when I asked him to take photos of the piece during the process, this glass of Kenzinger somehow snuck into the frame, which made me laugh. Neither of us drink much, or often, but there is something about making molds that doesn't quite feel right without a cold beer in hand at the end. Cheers to that!

To any non-drinking readers, our apologies if this seems one-sided. We don't want anyone to feel left out. If no beer is available, ice cream has been known to produce a similar feeling of contentment post-mold making. For me, a Chipwhich in particular...Enjoy your after mold making delights...whatever they may be!
