Hubba Hubba Hamilton!

Finally, some pictures of Hunky Hamilton. I really took my time with all the details on this guy. His breeches were made from an historic pattern that I found on the Internet (in French). His waistcoat and frock coat are lined ... even his hat is made like a real hat: silk over buckram, then "blocked" with fabric stiffener. His hands and feet (the second try) were sculpted, then carved and painted. I've asked Hubby to make a stand for him with a pillar he can rest his hand on. I thought I'd make a little copy of The Federalist Papers and the Constitution on the pillar. Note the taut, round buttocks! Let me know what you think!
