infill detail

Much of the top rail and the lower flower bead needed to be remade. I made a simple trough by pressing modeling clay to the rail on both sides, then filled the trough with water putty. When it was firm but soft, I removed the clay, and sculpted the putty into shape. I had to carefully hand-carve the inner and outer cove on much of the top rail. I remade much of the bottom floral bead by making simple molds from modeling clay, and casting the missing sections in-situ.
