He's all baked! No going back now thecdetail is all locked in.
Looked around at some baking tips and from what i read its pretty straightforward. For now as its only a bake to protect detail, I've stuck to the standard 15 minutes at 130c for every 1/4" of thickness. But apparently baking longer is recommended for strength by a lot of sculptors so I'll do that on the final bake.
Had to trim the threaded rod to get him in the oven and there was some darkening of the clay but that's good apparently the darker it is the stronger.
So next up its torso time! Doubt I'll get anymore done over easter, so no updates till next week.
Hope you all have a good one!
Thanks for looking, more soon
