Scottish Lion - Cast Paper

$119.99




Scottish Lion
From Scottish Heraldry

The Scottish Lion is the definitive Scottish symbol. It is found on almost every Scot coat of arms and on the flag of Scotland.

The frame dimensions are 12" x 16" and 1" deep.

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.

Beautiful quality of work. These will make a wonderful gift for my Scottish husband. I would highly recommend this artisan and purchase from him again.


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!


Beautiful! Bought as gift for my husband. Received in just a few days. We were both pleased with how nice the pictures are. Also purchased the thistle. Thank you!
