I sanded and painted the mask and eyes. I printed some irises on glossy paper then cut them out and glued them to the eye. This really quick animation just proves to me that it works.

There are some modifications that need to be made, but I think all the parts work well enough to move forward with this build. The hair and mouth shapes are next.

My latest 3D prints arrived last night (7 pieces in all). Two eyes, eye holder, mask, back head, main hub, and clamp for neck wire. Everything is keyed except the neck clamp which has two nuts and bolts.

I glued in the little magnets so the mask clicks right into place.

This week I'll explore the issues and work on sanding and painting everything.

I have yet to finish the two hair pieces which will fit into the slots on top of the head, of course the little divots on top don't have the magnets yet.

Really fun!!
