clay model with many different surfaces, her front is the back of the flat back
filling in edges and a wall under the chin, plastic, the spare
clay wall, plaster poured for first part of mould
First part, a spill, the third part
prep for Third part, pulling off the fourth part
digging out the model, took ages, soften lines, checking for undercuts where slip might get caught
inside the mould, requiring an inside out mind
digging her out, dealing with extruded hair
after over 2 hours of cleaning her up, all 4 parts are now in the drying cupboard and I hope to cast Monday/early next week
