I wanted to post my latest project to gather some ideas for the finish I should use. It’s a joint venture project to which my wife has actually contributed a lot.
It took us nearly nine months (until last Friday) to complete and now we are uncertain how to finish it.
We’ve tried all kinds of oils and water based solutions but the surface is still somewhat “raw”. All finishes applied so far seem to be sucked up quickly. This has led to dried out areas around the feet and face (side). At the bottom it’s always a bit wet and seems to leak a golden fluid of uncertain origin.
What I like best is the organic shape and the flowing curves (really curvy around the legs with extremely long feet as I find). It seems to smile sometimes.
Any comments on the best finish to bring out the natural beauty are welcome.
Here’s a picture to give you an impression of our creation!
