I just finished “Wintersleep” the sculpture in hydrocal. I still need to take nice pictures, but I brought it to a gallery for a show. So it has to wait.
I learned that I need to keep the sculpture wetter before adding another layer. Although the different color layers look like very organic stone. As finish I used encostic. It worked great. I had the sculpture on the woodstove getting nice an warm and the encostic just melted on and in the pores. A hairdryer worked to give extra heat. It feels like a very nice finish.
