THE EMPEROR'S NIGHTINGALE


The photo is looking into the mould, the face is not coming out towards you. It may not look like it in the photo, but the plaster mould has been painted with three or four layers of shellac, to seal the plaster, two layers of wax polish, left to dry and polished each time, and two layers of Unibond PVA Adhesive and Sealer, to provide a barrier to the glass fibre gelcoat which will be applied next.
