Poor Evelyn

I sure hate to see Evelyn this way. Not only is she in pieces, but she has welds all over her. I trust in Miguel at Betz Art Foundry. His work is impeccable. She will soon see Evelyn back together. I hate posting the picture with her with the strap around her neck, but we don't want her to fall over and she is not welded to her base yet. I want to be sure she is going to stand properly so we tack on the arms and check her attitude! She does stand with an attitude and I want to be sure it is there.
The foundry men prepare to put Evelyn on 
her base. 
There are so many piece of Evelyn.  I have perfected the 
sculpting and the wax and then see what a mess the process
creates.  Not to fear, the foundry man at Betz foundry is 
incredible. We will have Evelyn back together in no time at all. 

I'm checking and rechecking the pieces to be sure
that everything is going to fit.  I'm very picky. 

If you remember the wax pour you might have seen that 
this part of Evelyn's hand was cut away in the gating
of Evelyn's hand.  I'll be checking closely to be sure this 
looks perfect before my client sees it.  

I hate to see the strap around her neck, but how else can she 
stand up?  O.k Miguel you better match my texture.
