Rampant Lion - Cast Paper



  • Details
    Rampant Lion
    From Scottish Heraldry

    The frame dimensions are 8" x 12"

    These are two separate pieces. You may choose right or left-facing lions - let me know in the order comments. If you order a pair they will be facing each other. These make nice side pieces for 12" x12" and 12" x 16" works.

    Paper Casting
    Paper casting is to me the perfect medium. It allows me to use almost every skill set. A typical piece begins as a drawing or two. Then I sculpt it in wax. This is a long refining process and often the image sculpted is far different from the drawing. Then I build a dam around the wax and pour a rubber mold directly off the surface. A casting is made by pressing the wet cotton pulp into the mold and extracting the water. Then I finish the surface.
    While every piece that emerges from the mold is about the same, no two are really painted the same. Maybe I would if I could, but the painting process is always in flux. I am always experimenting with ways of mixing colors or washes and hard edges or new pigments. I spend about 75% of my time with the painted finishes.

    Love the unique cast paper art. Exactly as I had seen it at a highland games festival near Charlotte, NC. Had some trouble with the postal system regarding delivery. Kevin was very supportive and concerned. Even after I received notice it was finally on its way, Kevin continued to work on replacements in case it was damaged. Everything worked out in the end.

    Love these thank you!

    Excellent experience with this shop. Beautiful exquisite work....beautifully packed....arrived on time. Have purchased several examples and have a few more in mind.

    I was so pleased to receive and proudly display this beautiful work of cast paper art. Kevin Dyer is an artist in complete command of his medium. Kevin kindly tailored this artwork to the dimensions I requested. It was lovingly and carefully wrapped, and shipped to me promptly. I look forward to viewing more of this artist's fine work! M.

    I accidentally ordered the incorrect piece and Robert was responsive and helpful. He let me substitute out my original order for 2 of the same thing (which I REALLY appreciated). Robert has an amazing online shop that is very user friendly. It was easy to order and it shipped almost immediately! He packages his work very carefully and it arrived fully intact and ready to hang. We absolutely love your work!
