I struggled with this as the air was so arid that the clay dried extraordinarily fast. In the result, areas I don't want to crack were also cracking. This piece may not be salvageable.
Because of the new style, I did not make butterflies out of molds. Instead, I just put two pieces of clay here and there on the figure. Do you think they look like butterflies? Do you think she needs them?

I do not think it needs anything else. She is beautiful.

What a surprise it was to hear from you, Sean. I'm going to try 2 other techniques to make butterflies. If they don't work, butterflies will stay the way they are. I just have to try. You know how artists are. It was wonderful to hear from you.
