Default One step closer to my Project G globes being made!

Hi Everyone.

I got a little more work done on my globes.

Spent a little (OK, a lot!) time refining the surface of the pattern for my Project G globe mold. After coating it with fairing compounds I used a semi-circular sanding block (ie. a block cut to exactly the radius that I desired in the finished pattern), glued some sandpaper on it, and sanded away. Filled in the gaps, sanded some more. Filled in the remaining gaps, sanded some more. Repeat, repeat, repeat.

Then I spray painted it gloss black and sanded that to find any remaining hollows. I'll be repeating this a couple more times before its ready to pull a mold off of.

But for now its looking pretty good!
