Part 2… Here is the sculpture  with the gloves and sword added…  after a little sanding and grinding, I could finish painting… The sword got 2 coats of foam coat and a coat of liquid epoxy to stregthen it…

I painted gloss on the eyes to give them a wet look…


Painting is finished!  The surface texture is a blend between smooth and a low random texture…

I had Rebekah stand next to the sculpture to give a sense of size… It is 4 Ft. tall.
