It is way too smooth, (as are all the fake "Nellies" now fitted to the cars) The genuine item was more in keeping with Rembrandts other work, and sculpted with much more passion. The cast you have here is taken from the real thing, but it is about a seventh generation copy.

Is it supposed to be that tilted? On the Royales, the copies look upright...

No, it is not. But wax castings can do funny things. I have one that is completely twisted. Feet going forwards, head looking sideways.

Too much of a hurry. I see it all of the time. Give the wax time to cool down.

Which material exactly? A powder and a liquid that you need to mix?
