Some significant progress to report!
The head was ABD (all-but-done). . . technically. In short, it was undoubtedly better than what was provided in the kit, and for most it would have been "good enough". BUT. . . was it good?
Or better than "good"?? And the answer was--not really. To that point, I had gotten off the ground floor and had taken my initial steps onto the first floor. The time had come to commence with the fine analysis of texture and form. . .
And after about an hour analyzing stills from the show, and another hour at the bench with the putty, the head is on the home stretch! It will be a rather lengthy lap, as I intend to resculpt ALL the hair; but once that is done, I can then begin the final finishing. . .
