    Ladies and Gents.......this is how she looks before the FINAL RASH of PRIMER.

    As you can see, after the Dr.90210 breast augmentation job, I had to perform hairdresser......hope I made a decent job of it.

    Leaf stem and flower are stuck to the pond (base + MS bed) and a brass pin is inserted in the Princess' knee, from where I'll hold her during the painting to come and this will show in the progress pics which I'll surely shoot and post......pollen tube has been replaced by a hollow electronic wire (like the telephone wire), where the inner copper rod has been removed for a more flexible feel and look.

    Grass arm bands have been enhanced with foliage leaves.

    Saving for any unforseen flaws that might surface in the hair do, after I prime her, I would start painting ASAP!

    And before you ask......honestly I'm not decided yet as to what/how shall I paint her.....most probably I'll start from the leaf and flower, so she can wait some more.

    Fascinating and truly beautiful! It has something of an art deco/turn of the century feel to it, doesn't it?

    All the best,

    The "surgical enhancement" is very neat, but it is the hair that really impresses. I understand this has been a medium-long term commitment...

    Cracking presentation thus far. Will follow with keen interest.

    Costas, Dan, Carl, Marc, Micharel, Brian, Ken, David, John, and Chris thanks for looking and your encouraging words.......much appreciated.

    @Dan's, [It has something of an art deco/turn of the century feel to it, doesn't it?] love your quote :D

    @Michael, Yes indeed it has been a mid-long term committment as the individual strands of Duro were rolled out, twisted accordingly and stuck. A painstaking task but could not see it could have been done otherwise, so I just went for it, stage by stage, building the volumes, letting them cure and move upwards to the next volumes :(

    @David, hopefully she'll be with me at Euro :p

    Regards to ALL,

    Ray ;)
