Wooden Butterful mold

Clay add to fill in the gaps
The wooden butterful is now complete, it is very smooth which isn't what I want, so I added texture to the wood. I also needed to fill in the areas which were not solid with clay. The beginning steps are involved, the process is time consuming. Best to take your time and do all the corrections in the clay because once the piece is in wax it takes more steps to correct. If one waits till the piece is created in bronze to correct errors, that could take weeks to correct.
