The curve isn't much and it was switching back and forth for me today. The reason is the right side of the neck sticking out a bit too far. When you look at the curve between the tusk tubes on that side you can see the neck should be a little further in to follow the curve. However, the fix is going to be tricky, because I really like the curve you have on the neck. However, when you make the next cast, you could try and push in that side a bit when it is still curing or you could just cast it as-is and then sand the area. I think if that area is addressed it will automatically get the correct curve to the mask as the original. The fact that you even captured that in a free-hand sculpture is pretty damn amazing.

thank you very much, really very kind to explain to me! then the next cast will do it with a very thick layer of resin, so that I can smooth and correct the area! even the right haunch will undergo a small change, because for what I see it is too small near the nose! thanks again, very useful! :thumbsup
