After it had been baked it had still lost a bit of its shape, and you can also see the difference in colour where the thinner bits of clay have been made harder (st2.5).
As it didn't quite fit i had to saw it into 3 parts which would leave small gaps that would have to be filled with Milliput later.
I then marked on Kanu where the 3 different pieces would sit for future ref. (st2.6 & st2.7).
Its then just a case of sanding, carving and some shaping before adding some Milliput detailS (st2.8 & st2.9).
