Nimble was interested in this whale sculpture, so here’s another step in its development. I would have left it natural wood, but it’s two pieces fused just behind the case, and it was too small to work in much detail, so I’ve decided to polychrome it. This is the primer phase. Then I’ll patch the remaining voids with Synko and move on to painting it a grayish brown, with a lighter ventral side, and a few white streaks where it’s been playing with giant squid.
This was fun. I want to build a larger one.
