Swirling goddess ready for kiln

I tried a new technique on this one. Instead of burnishing which was not going to be easy with those arms, I used a damp piece of leather and smoothed the surface. Worked very nicely.

I got the idea from a book on sculpting heads from clay that had loads of pictures. One of the things it showed was how to create hair that looks alive and growing. A very useful set of techniques that I might just apply to a snake goddess.
