And so, for now, a final product. After speaking with my professor I've definitely come to the conclusion that she is going to need a sister piece to compliment her composition. All future plans aside I'm happy I was able to make a cut that would keep everything in tact from those water jets. With the right nail placement the plexi actually managed to lock in the clockwork piece in the back like I had imagined. I can't get over how effective all the measuring and work up it took to complete something that was aiming for minimalistic.
I'm so happy.
