couple of more things to do, but i thought i'd show off something i've done recently.














oh, there's a couple of rough spots i need to smooth and add some detail to the ears.

my eyes are tired for the night, though.

i think it may be the smallest moai i've ever done.

i also would like some input on the ring portion of it. i'll post a pic of that, too.

I love the softness of it all, that's how I picture I'd make one...wouldn't come out like that though! Beauty.

thanks, surfin and atp.

this is how i'm thinking of putting the ring on top. i kind of wanted to incorporate it into the whole thing. i didn't want to just stick a ring on the top or put a hole through it. what do you people think?

I think the ring is to big ,and takes away from the awesome piece.

thanks, i'm going to mold it for injection with a tiny ring in the middle of the top. it has to make it hang right . . . balanced and straight.

i put this on the back. once it's cast and polished the tiny rough edges will be gone. and they are pretty tiny even if they look big in the macro shot. those types of shots help me see what i need to smooth. i may put some lava like texture on some wax pieces to see how that looks, too.
