Regarding Mooney's Bust

Stephen's making a bronze bust of Mooney for his wedding. I volunteered to make the armature.

There are some very good instructions in the book From Clay to Bronze, but I had to make a few substitutions as there isn't an extensive line of plumbing materials in the local hardware. 

There are no threads on the pipe or the thing (possibly a floor flange) holding it to the board so I used epoxy glue. I also had to cut the pipe with a hack saw.

I'm so proud of my work, I may be a little disappointed when it's covered up in clay.

A the moment, it's prettier than Mooney is I can tell ya.

Seriously though, i can't wait to see the finished piece.
