A fascinating vision of Kipling in pink wax pieces! Can’t wait to see it all put together.
Next stop Athens!
Casting with the boys from Athens.
Fiddling stage now. The big dilemma is going to be when to stop!
Head was too big, so reduced it!
Working on the face. Got the glasses made wider and took lenses out – what a difference!
Big day. Got the seal of approval for the sculpture from John Walker of the Kipling Society Approved by Kipling Society, Batemans and Parish Council. Phew!
He was also really helpful and said that Kipling had sloping shoulders – changed now, feel much better.
Head work today (and feet!)
Still not sure about the shoulders. Looking forward to feedback from John Walker.
Changed arms again! Need help. Got people in.
Amy from Batemans, Mary Clarke and Claire Walford, Philippa Evans and family… great help, especially Mary.
Long day. Think it’s getting there.
Long day. Having worked on the sleeves, at the end of the day realised the arms are too long now!
