    I just received the 250mm bust of General George Washington from The Artist Preservation Group. The bust was sculpted by Matt Springer and he has done an outstanding job. It is cast in resin and in two pieces.
    The casting job is excellent and will require little cleanup.
    The kit came in a very sturdy box and carefully wrapped in bubble wrap.
    It includes painting instructions (thank you) and prep guidelines.
    I am extremely pleased with this bust and would highly recommend it.

    Working on this one as we speak. I've started laying in my oils alll ready. I agree whole-heartedly Rocky, this is one outstanding piece. Matt did phenomenal job sculpting and John at UEM did a GREAT job casting. A fantastic piece to work with!

    Mike,
    Very nice crisp detail and great sculpt. It could tempt me to do a bust?

    Sorry Mike! I guess since I got my copy from John in Atlanta I incorrectly assumed he did the casting on this one. Either way, great stuff and reall fun piece! Thanks for setting me straight!

    I can't say enough how greatful I am to Matt for doing this bust for the APG. Not only is Matt a very talented man but is also a generous supporter of our efforts. Many thanks Matt.

    Mike,

    Thanks! You are too kind.

    Ok, you've convinced me. I'd like to sculpt another bust for the APG as my contribution to the next project. If you have subject ideas, Mike or anyone else, please feel free to post them here or email me.

    Thanks!

    Wow! Thanks Matt. Becasue the next project will be centered on the Gettysburg Show next year it will of course be a Civil War theme. The one bust that comes to mind would be Hancock.

    On that subject we have the hotel locked on and they are now taking reservations for the show. http://www.eisenhower.com/ Make sure you mention you are with the APG Show. The rate is $110 a night for double ocupancy. Show dates are 7-9 Aug 2009 and the room rate is good for one week prior and after. John Jefferies is the Show Chairman and he's preparing vendors info etc now. We will have an announcement here and on the APG site when everything is ready. This one is going to be fun. We're planning a picnic, (in lieu of a banquet)tours, and a special contest.

    Hello
    Great bust! I have Puławski bust sculpted by Matt Springer wich I'm painting at the moment. I'm not a top painter but I don't mind. I't's a great feeling to be in touch with a bust created by such a talent as Matt.
    Warm regards

    It is a great piece, looks just like the quarter! ;)

    Seriously, it looks well-done, very clean casting, from the pictures, and excellent sculpting.

    Thanks again guys. Glad you like the bust.

    Mike - Granted it may be a fine film, but what does Hancock have to do with the ACW?????
