Just spent a big marathon session working the wax for Jillian’s sugar skull. I haven’t rounded out the eyes yet, but I’ve finished the rose and sugar floral work on either side of the head, the script on the shank, as well as the feature piece at the top of the forehead. The eyes and the treatment on the lower forehead and jaw are next.
It’s hard to take good shots of wax like this. But I’ve done my best.
This kind of project is a lot of fun to work on. We’re closing in on a completion date for this fellow. I have to say, this is one of my favorite sugar skulls thus far.
This is some fine carving. I particularly like how the cross sectorises the forehead. What finish will this ring wear?
We’ll end up with a hi-polish finish on this one.
With added patina to pick out the details? Fab!
Looking great Matt! I’m sorry I haven’t checked in sooner; this is our busiest month at Atlanta Underdog Initiative on top of a new job. It’s on my mind a lot, though! I’m glad you are enjoying working on it–it is a very special piece 🙂
