Crazy Al stopped by today. Say's, "You were working on that last Time I saw you".
Yep, I decided to give her a refinish and a refinement. She's going to need more teak oil and some time curing.

I"m looking into making a mold to do some replicas for sale. I just can't bear to part with her. Lot's of time in that girl. And it's Old hand work.

I prefer the insane fleshy ones myself, but I could definitely see the advantage of having one who can't talk...

The curing process. Such detail color hues with the grain of this Schefflera wood. How fortunate I am to have experimented with it. The colors will blend after the teak oil cures out but the details will be visible.

Noting the wood grain on the face and breasts. Areas on the sides take lighter hues as the cells are more resistant to absorption of the oil.

That's really impressive Mike, the human body has got to be one of the most difficult things to represent...

That's a fact!

I need a model. They cost unfortunately. Even when you can find one who'll undress for free they hate standing in the same position for long periods. Best I can do is the best I can do.

I've decided to another woman. I've got a full time job and can take some time away to make a 'Too much time and quality to sell" promotional work.

The armature. Basically a wire skeleton for holding together a plastoline sculpture to serve as a model for my next schefflera wood girl'

Taking shape you get the attachment of a creator. 'It' becomes 'She'
