In spite of it being a shelter-skelter day in the shop with many projects on the go, I managed to finish off the sculpt of the hippopotamus. He is a very fun piece! Becke spent her day adding more colour and detail paint to the engine as well as the base coats of colour on the giraffe.
With help from the crew to mix the sculpting epoxy I managed to polish off the sculpt of the giraffe and get a good start on the hippopotamus. Becke was busy putting the base coats on the train elephant engine. It is way beyond colourful and definitely looks like a circus train! The three pieces together are a whole lot of fun. By noon tomorrow the sculpting should be done. The mechanical animal circus cars are designed to look good, no matter what direction they are approached from.
I spent an enjoyable day finishing off the sculpt of the elephant engine. It turned out better than the drawing! Becke put on a textured coat of primer and tomorrow she'll begin laying on the colour. I can hardly wait!
