Refining and smoothing all the parts

The batch of heads and torsos are done... now begins the detailing and refining of the limbs. It looks easy, but it is delicate work and the pieces can fall apart if they become too wet and won't smooth if they are too dry. The arms will be allowed to dry completely again and only then will the tiny jointing wires be inserted.

Can't really stay away from her...

I have other work I am wanting to get done, but I keep coming back to working on Cady. I refined her torso and limbs, the holes, steel posts and joints to get ready for painting.

Lots more casting!

This is such a messy process, I had forgotten how messy it is. I am learning about this slip. It is not porcelain slip, which is challenging, but has it's own quirks.
