There's a layer of woodchips an inch thick all around my workbench. They go amazing colours on the wet studio floor. A rich dark red leaches out of the wood that's been soaking up water for some days. You could probably use the chips as a dye, in places the floor looks almost bloody.
Here's how the sculpture is looking at the moment. It's starting to take shape now, although there's a lot of refining to do before I can decide whether it will be smooth or still have the gouge marks showing.
