Once the glue is dry, it is possible to remove the paper tape.
A film of paper, such as a piece of tissue, can be useful to reinforce some parts of the sculpture. The film of paper is placed into the more fragile areas and covered by glue which, once absorbed by the paper, solidifies and reinforces the selected part.
Once the internal glue reinforcement is dry, more glue is stuck onto some parts of the external surface in order to further reinforce the edges and fill in any extra space which has been created between them.
The picture represents the first part of the sculpture: letters "p" and "e".
