Hello all,
I recently cast a head. she's full of goiters and warts and flashing.
Once I get rid of those, what's the next step?
Do I sandblast?
I'm not interest in a pristine surface, but I am interested in surface continuity.
I'm stuck.
Words of wisdom?
Many thanks,

Seems like a series of loose grits applied with various soft or small tools might work well.
