Sculpture journal 2/ 26/10

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.
