My progress posts have fallen a bit behind the actual project progress. To be honest, the cuirass has been finished for several days! These images from last week will have to serve as an appetizer until I have a photo shoot with the finished cuirass. In the state shown, the steel has be sanded through six grits of abrasive and awaits buffing.
I will have photos of the finished cuirass within the next few days, so be sure to check back soon!
I must say, the cuirass looks pretty cool in this form. You can really detect the subtle changes in the musculature with the satin finish. Though the finished product is outstanding.
