Final sanding and Paint!
Finished the hair and sanding then stained her. I'm not really sure why I bothered to stain her other than just to see what oak would look like. I was planning on painting her all along. The stain settles the question since the nose looked dirty and the bondo obviously did not stain up. Anyway, I spent the rest of the night trying to get the colors right, but it is late now and she is starting to look "off" to me at this point. I was planning on touching her up a bit tomorrow after having some time to fully dry and then adding a coat or two of polyurethane. I was kinda happy with the way the cat turned out, even if the stripes do look a little bright at the moment. She's so close to being done, final pictures in a couple of days!
