The last two sessions of work on the statue have been armoring the skin of the mannequin with layers of fiber-matting and fiberglass resin, to give more strength and structural integrity to the statue before I start adding metal structures to it. Before I started this step, I also sanded the whole surface of the mannequin. That's the reason for the creepy zombie-eyed look as some of the paint was sanded off the eyes. If you are thinking to yourself, "That does not look anything like a goddess, yet," you are correct. I'm keeping the faith that it will eventually!
