Progress on the Sign Invitational Challenge piece was rapid today as I got a hand from Grant. He's an awesome (and very fast) mixer of sculpting epoxy. Because of the volume of material I had to work with I tackled some large areas. I want to incorporate as many textures as possible into the entire piece. Today, it was all about the woodgrains of the trestle uprights and the stone textures of the cliff face and column supports. While most of the big areas are now under control I am excited to get back to the small details. In the next two weeks this project will be set aside while other things are happening. But I'll soon be back at it to take the project to it's completion.
