I recently finished up the tape job for the "Cathartic Birth" piece. All the legs, feet, crotch... DONE!! On to the burlap!! I made a tester to see how the burlap will look wrapped tightly and coated in shellac. I'm sold! Looks great and I'm ready to move forward! Tests are definitely an annoying step in this whole process.. but it has helped me gain confidence in treating the surface of this piece. I'd rather waste time on meaningless tests than screw up in a way that I can't reverse.
You should take a moment and marvel at my HUGE bolt of raw burlap. Its just so... beautiful....
