    And the Milk Jug emerges...

    psteiner Mar 9 '05 11

    So I took the milk jug out from the mold after a short delay...it kinda looks "frakenstein-ish"

    besides that, nothing much studio as usual. Except that I tried to fly down the stairs at the Field Museum and am now on crutches, with a fancy medical boot an brace. Too cool for school...-pamela

      Why are you casting chocolate milk jugs, and what do they have to do with architecture?

      So...it's not made out of chocolate, but it could be. It's made out of foundry wax. Why am I casting milk jigs? Because I am in the coolest class ever...mold making and casting class that is. What does it have to do with architecture? Absolutely nothing, except that I am an architecture student and this is my only "non-architecure" class..so needless to say I look forward to it every week. Don't get me wrong, I live and breathe architecture, but like the ARCHINECT T-SHIRT says, "Architecture Sucks" and it's really nice to get away from it for a while. If that means Milk Jugs for me, then I'll take it.

      the real question is what is it doing in your fridge ...
      is it that timeless old wax-chocolate-milk-jug roommate gag?

      good stuff psteiner, fun to share in you jug making experience!

      and to try and wind you up further, why are you not making it out of chocolate?

      I know you Americans like your chocolate milk, so why not make it a uber chocolate experience. It certainly would be a wonderful take on sustainability, drink the milk, eat the container...

      mmmm....chocolate. To make it out of chocolate (that's edible) I would have had to buy the expensive dental plaster to make the original mold in. I am too cheap for that. And I would've needed alot, the final plaster mold weighed in at over 20 pounds...I've been putting all my wax creations i the fridge recently so I am sure they have sompletly hardened...I had a few too many accidents with molten wax, I learned my lesson sort of.
