You won't be able to see much difference from the previous photo but I've added another few layers of paper mache, changed the direction of the collar bones and thickened his ears, added a base and now he's drying for at least three days to harden. It may take longer to dry even as he's not hollow. Then the proof is in the pudding if he's smooth enough and the details are right, I worry a little about his nose, might have to carve that finer but we'll see. I decided not to add paper mache clay because I like the course and rough texture and jagged curves. So far I'm very happy with this (for me) new way of sculpting with the crumbled paper, I think I will use this from now on.
