yes,yes,yes! i found the everluvin camera! yay! here is most recent pix of the clown we now call " Uncle Maccaroni". yes that is the title, and yesa, he is a yankee doodle dandee. i have layered his pants with a thick fiberglas matting, as well as the hat. and on the hat i offset the texture of the matt w/ stripes and stars made of fiberglas cloth stips. then i grind and sand. next i will do the same for his trouser legs. man, oh man, i is so far behind schedule on this baby! i forgot just how much sanding was required, and just how little time 15 min. is til liquid turns to a blob of gelatinous glop. a completely unusable blob of gelatinous glop! but i have determined that the perfect amount of workable resin is about 8oz. at a time, this way it all gets used with little wasted. and that crizz-app ain't cheap, baybee! about $22 a gal @ the fiberglas store, $30 at home despot. so far i've gone thru aboot 4 gals with no end in sight ( wait, what's that fuzzy dot at the end of the tunnel? ). so check out his groovy hat and sanded self , next week we cast and mount the hands! whooo, exciting! can't wait.
