... on something new.

I started making something new this weekend. I had in mind a set of puffy white plaster clouds. Initially I thought I was doing okay.

Then I went overboard on the finishing.

I realised then that I'd really liked the effect of the scalpel marks I made as I was removing the cardboard, and that by getting rid of them and smoothing the surface, the cloud was losing what I felt made it interesting in the first place - but I didn't know it at the time. I think I'll toss out the over-finished one and make a set of three. Templates are ready to go!
