Rampant Lion - Cast Paper


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 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 that 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 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 edge or new pigments. I send about 75% of my time with the painted finishes.

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!
