Finessing the Sculpture

stonesculpture

As you can see I have fine tuned the rabbit head. I have given it a texture using a riffler file. This is usually the only time I use a file, to add texture.

All the elements are brought together by the hair almost braiding between the two faces. This stone sculpture has been smoothed out with a knife. There is still a bit more cleaning up to do with the surface and the next step is wet sanding and knifing. I start out at about a 220 grit and go to an 800 grit which gives this stone a polish. If I’m really picky about polish I might go to 1200 grit.
