This sculpture incorporates a lot of very rich leatherwood wax from my new Beeman (and no, I won't share him, so don't ask :)). I tend to work more at night to avoid the bees, and wasps, but can't always resist, so it's an apply wax, then dash away for a bit, while the bees swarm, kind of operation. I also have to watch out for my dogs who nab good bones from my work bench while my back is turned.
As usual this sculpture is pushing me hard to make her, telling me exactly what she wants, and how she wants it, so she's coming together pretty quickly at this point. We'll see, but I suspect I'll be busy for a while.
More photos down the track.
