just finished the glitter, in which i am now covered. and doweling the four pieces of the center stalk. and i'm psyched cause i came up with the perfect name for the gigantron piece: exsilio! latin for spring, leap, or burst forth. i like it.
basically, all that's left is to varnish the sides of the center stalk and cover the bottom puzzle-y piece in black satin. it's actually time to start thinking about the next project... wow. almost feels like i've given birth. this has taken nine months.
