I made it!!!
All three pieces for the New Jersey show are done. It was a little push to get everything sculpted. Then the drying was out of my hands. Fortunately we had a little sunshine and they all took a turn sitting in the car to get really nice and warm and help with the drying. The painting went smooth too. Today I picked up the black bases. It makes such a difference. They look very nice and finished now, and the proportions to each other are great as well. I hope I will see pictures of the chest they will be standing on. I am crossing my fingers that it actually looks great.
Tomorrow everything will get wrapped up and off it goes….
