I have just about finished. This is certainly the best picture I have done of this beaded girl but still not totally happy with it. The skin is quite painterly and I would have preferred it smoother. I should have layered more carefully in the early stages. I put the paper on a sheet of rigid plastic placed on a hot water bottle to try to blend a little more. It certainly helped to melt the wax enough to blend with finger but it then became rather dull so had to work over it again. I can hear my teachers comments on my school reports echoing in my ears. 'Must take more care and not rush things!' agh if only I could.
