St Vincent’s hospital nurse roundel progress

I need to let the clay firm up a little more before I work on her more, other than overall cleaning up and refining which needs to be done on firmer clay, she’s basically finished.

I hollowed her out from the back today, removing 25# of clay, that will help get the model drying enough to get firmer. These round models unlike the straight sided models can’t simply be stood up vertically to hollow the back out, so the way I did it before on round models was laying it flat on the back suspended over a couple of boards with enough space netween them I can get my hand and tool in to dig out some of the weight in the middle to start with.
