    Some photos with the bust temporally attached to horse,this is where I got to on the 5th jan before I had an accident slicing through my left thumb,things are at stand still for the present until the hand feels better.

    Bloody 'ell, Brian! Mind you, I've done the same thing myself, some years ago......claret up the wall, ruined a t-shirt...so I can sympathise from experience. At least scalpels give a nice clean cut:eek: When next we meet, we'll compare scars, like old campaigners:LOL: Take care of yourself , old son, and I hope it heals well soon.

    A new Blade will cut you ever time! Been there got the Tshirt, many a time .But what the hell ,that' s modelling for you.
    Apart from the bloody thumb ,all looking good .This will give you time to think on the next stage,
    Hopefully not how to cut off one' s thumb .

    Hi
    Like the way your work is progressing on this

    Bit of bad luck with the blade ......I have had loads of
    scalpel cuts ......though console myself that it wasn't a sabre cut inflicting the kind of injuries
    I have read about and would wish to avoid

    Wish you well for when you get back to the bench

    Ouch!! Been there done that. I have the busts, the horses heads for my idea. I haven't found the right base or figured how to deal with the shabraque yet, but a way will come to me sooner or later. Really like where yours is going

    Hello Brian: First of all, I am sorry that you slipped with the
    knife. I presume you're right handed? Like you and so many
    others here, I've slashed my thumb and forefingers a number
    of times over the years. As one planeteer said "Been there,
    done that. . . . and bought the T-shirt".

    However, I do not want to fail to mention how much I
    admire your artistic talent and your creative eye. This
    will be another stunner for you, Brian. Hope you heal
    very soon,
