Well, just finished this guy. I find I am less than thrilled with hypertufa as a carving medium, as it it very difficult to get any degree of refinement-you are pretty much married to the rough-hewn-from-the-lava look I am not especially proud of him, but here is my funky creation. Next time I will do things differently. I will:

1. carve from a sand and cement mix, which should allow for much finer detail

2. be smart, and work on a raised surface. I had to quit working on this one before I would have liked, because my poor back was killing me from the stooping over.
