• Gesso Alien

    Three layers of gesso on the alien, sanding between each coat, to prep it for acrylic paint.

  • Smooth & Fill

    I waited two days for the clay to dry on the beak and eyelids, then I took a coarse grit 80 sandpaper to smooth off any sloppy trowel ridges…

  • Fill and Smooth

    Added a thin coat of joint compound and gesso sanding between layers for a smoother surface on the concrete paper clay.
