Celtic Cross - Work in Progress

I finished shaping the Celtic cross wall sculpture today. Here is a pic I took of the original (made from a non-drying clay) before I started applying latex for the mold:

I am only up to coat #4 of latex right now. It will take about another dozen coats, so with drying time (about two hours in between coats) I will probably be applying latex till Thursday. Then it will have to cure for a day or two before I can move on to the next step, which is making a mother mold around it. (This will need to be from something rigid, such as plaster. It prevents the latex mold from losing its shape when the hydrostone is poured in.) After that, the hydrostone can be poured in, and then it has to dry before I can paint it. I'll be sure and post a pic here when I have one finished.
