More polishing and texturising done today.
The fault line running through the beak can be seen from this side (see above pic). I've been trying to smooth it down, but it's very resistant!
Pic on the right is after further polishing and spraying with water to get an idea of what it will look like when highly polished and waxed.
I started writing this blog in December 2016, but it covers projects started in spring 2015 onwards, so it was written retrospectively until I caught up with the current term.
