A Week of Filling and Sanding
The polystyrene core is coated with a finishing skim plaster. Several layers need to be applied to achieve the finish I want. The above photograph shows the second layer being applied to be base of the sculpture.
All week I've been coating and sanding back, coating and sanding back. I've still some way to go before the desired finish is achieved. Once I've got the surface refined I can begin to make my mould for casting it into fibre glass.
Mould and maquette.
