Lots to do this week. Finish Mad Ancestor’s cover, write story notes, and do as much as I can on Pan’s wax model. I repaired the rock today — put a slab of wax in the toaster oven to soften it, and applied it to the seams and the couple of damaged spots. To regain the rock texture I used one of the bits of broken concrete I used as a texture stamp on the original, with cling wrap over it to prevent concrete crumbs from getting in the wax.
Here he’s holding the pipes — in the final piece they won’t be touching his chin. The way he looks lying down on the bubble wrap makes me want to try a recumbent figure. Also, Gary and Jenny (the little horse man and rabbit girl) are cast, just waiting now for cleanup and patina.
