I tried a new trick in coming up with the bows for the back of the mask and hat. Taking a piece of very thin Tupelo I boiled it and let it soak for about an hour and then made the knots. I then held the knots together with a clothes pin until they were dry. A little drop of superglue on the back will hold them together until I can finally attach them to the head. I think it really gives a neat effect and should look even better once painted.
There are several other photos in the Gallery and as always your comments are welcome and appreciated.
