I'm finishing a large (18" by 12" by 3" oval) mask of the Tecate Gold with
the features and markings made of Blk Mountain clay partially embedded in
the Tecate Gold. It's such a lovely color and this is my first project
using it (the Tecate Gold). Any thoughts on what sort of finish might work
on this?
