Mr Singh's beard

I am not getting on very fast with this project as I have had to work over our national holiday weekend and am also trying to do a major revamp in the studio but here is Mr Singh's beard. I placed a sheet of stiff plastic over the photograph (enlarged to the size I wanted to work) and then used small pieces of cheesecloth and diluted PVA to follow the lines of his beard and moustache. It had to sit for a couple of days to dry thoroughly and then I was able to peel it off as one piece. Now I need to work on the fabric collage pieces of the face and hopefully I might get a change to work on that this coming week
