    Nice work on that one, handcrafting is pretty difficult to my opinion so you have my respect^^ Well done, keep up the good work.

    Thx Laggtastic and yarin_t !
    I have hands prepared, but they will be fited after this is baked. Do not want to mess up the torso by fitting them now. Hope that plan will work

    Small stone tower that should act as a base for the bust:

    Great sculpt. Only crit I have is the copper twists. To make them pop they need to be more consistent. Next time twist the wire or even 4 plat it in a long length, then anneal it (over the gas burner or use one of those little fat pen propane torches, get it red hot then let it cool) then stretch it, gently hammer it flat and anneal it again (steel wool gets it beautifully clean after annealing) then make up your parts.

    Looking forwards to see how you finish this. I like it.

    We are remembered only by what we leave behind.

    Yes, the copper parts could be better, but in my "deffense", this is pretty small as you can see according to size of my fingertip:



    Not sure if hamering could help for such thin wire ? In any case heat could help to better form the copper, I'll try to do that next time
