Ah go stir the pot somewhere else

Troy does this sh*t for a living... and I don't possess the cloning tech he does. I do what I can with 1 set of opposable thumbs.

Sin short... I'll probably be working on this piece again soon pretty seriously.
so were you ever able to get this bad ass done?

Eventually... but not worries... I know of sculpts that have sat far longer than this guy... I'll bake him soon... and then just add clay and such from there... I just don't have an oven to call my own to actually bake him in currently... and the one we do have is TINY.

yeah im sure you have a lot on your plate right now. still cant wait to see this guy finished though.

but as far as baking. not sure if this is doable. or if you even can find one or have on in your area. but maybe look and see if you have a local pottery shop and see if you could use their kiln. that should be big enough for him to fit in. and im pretty sure a certain temp can be set. not sure if they would charge you. but usually local artists help one another out. just an idea/thought you might want to look into.

Oh sound no worries mate.. its just that i sculpted this bust last year and left it unbaked on my shelf, when i finally decided to bake him there was a massive crack down the middle!! I don't know what caused it, just assumed it it was left too long and dried out!!

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
