This is a HUGE milestone in the construction of this sculpture. Why? The mane was the very last major building step. And because of this I didn't size down the pictures that much in case you wanted a closer look.
From here on out I just have little things like the horn, the tiara, and final detailing, smoothing and corrections. I estimate one more week (I have 4 day weeks btw) if I can manage to work the majority of the day. I estimate no more than two weeks on a normal schedule. Cross your fingers, hope, and pray nothing cracks during this time.
I'll make two maybe three more sculpture posts before it's fired. One when I get the horn and tiara on, one when I'm done detailing, and one when it's sitting in the kiln before the fire.
Guys. I'm almost freaking finished!
