Not much completed tonight I'm afraid.  I finished the details on this figure and then ran out of clay.  This particular batch of paperclay has been festering since april and is absolutely RANK.  The difference in grey tones in the figure is simply the organic matter in the clay, it will all disappear in the firing.

I am currently drying out old scraps in order to recycle them as more clay.  Like a sourdough bread,  a little bit of the previous recipe becomes part of the next, this is obviously less delicious...
detail added, almost there, just the head to do... uh-oh, not enough clay
stinking, more rank than you can imagine...
gathering scrap for recycling.
