Huge progress in the last two weeks!
While I have been off on holiday in the French Alp's, Rachel spent a very productive week in the shed.
She refined the figure even further, making her much slimmer and more graceful. Then adding filler to fill in all the gaps and sanding it to the require finish. I one week She managed to finish all the sculpting, filling and sanding completing the sculptural side of the project.
Next stage was to work on the base, we had these two stands made then heated up the metal and inserted it into the foam melting it as we went; hard work but the final result was very satisfactory.
Here are the plates inserted.
Next was a coat of Stryoprime, a latex paint to seal the foam and prepare the figure for the Styrospray 1000.
A rigid resin coat that seals and strengthens the form. Three coats were enough to give us the finish we desired.
Now for the top coat of acrylic paint.
