Shell eye rough outs, that was fun! I still need to probably adjust the size and shape but just wanted to place them to see what they looked like. Now hopefully I don't die!

I decided to make the eyes smaller (since I messed up!) but I think I like it better. Still not %100 done, still need to set them in better (sticking out in some places) and clean up the eye sockets! It's been tricky trying to set the eyes but I like the challenge. It might not be that great, but it was my first shot! I also drilled out the hair plugs!

A little more..... set the eyes a little better, and spray painted (flat black) which I'm still going to sand and shape a little more tomorrow and then stain ebony and start the hair!

Hey G! I did stain it ebony but I'm having second thoughts about it. I kinda rushed and slacked on the sanding but now I think I'm going to clean him up better and maybe refinish him a slate gray (Robin may be right w/ him looking like Darth Vader)??? So no hair yet until I get the finish I like! Should have more progress this weekend.

Craigo,

How's the big guy going? Did you go back and hit him with another sanding session? If so, were you also able to get him back in stain? Any luck with the hair? I would love to see some pics if have some.

Hey G, the current status of the big guy is a crappy stain job and reconstructed eyes (well no eyes, the sockets got messed up but I have new shells to try something different)! I did figure how I am going to finish him but I have to get off the million coats of the other crap, and sanding this thing is nothing like the oak Tang, I keep sanding and sanding but nothing is coming off!! This month is also going to be slow with working on him because I working 12 hour days and Saturdays for the next to weeks for some extra Christmas money!! But once this hectic month is over I'm going back to carving Hardcore!! Keep an eye out for a package from the "freak" too hopefully in the next couple of weeks too (if all goes well) it's in the works. Did you already go on your trip yet?
