Ace is finally coming together! I’ve been making a lot of progress over this past week but haven’t updated on it, so here they are!
Saturday – April 20th
Ace’s ears were fully assembled and embellished. I spent the previous few days putting a gloss coat on everything and preparing the embellishments.
I also finished the mouth on Saturday.
Sunday – April 21st
Ace’s nose was finished. I glued rabbit fur strips, braided trim, and metal discs on it.
I also glued metal discs around the entire lion. Many had patterns, but some were just random.
Monday – April 22nd
It took me a horrendous 4 hours to mount the mirror because a lot of complications came up.
I also glued rabbit fur and braided trim around the horn.
My friend, Andy Ta, also helped me put on the bristle fur for the lion. A special post about him coming soon! 😀
I also glued rabbit fur and braided trim for the lower eye.
This is how Ace looks currently. I know I didn’t meet the Sunday deadline for finishing him, but I’m hoping to finish by Tuesday! Good luck to me, I guess.
