Suprise!

Once the masque is off, the next step is a SUPRISE:  it is putting masque back on!  This time it is just a tiny bit to protect the white around the bunny's eye, along the edge of the ear, the hilight in the pupil, and some light edges on the tower.
Then we start to build the colors in the bunny and tower, starting with the lightest, a base layer of light gold.  Figuring out which bits of the tower were the back legs and needed a darker base color was my intellectual exercise of the day.  But it will be worth it to have the tower appear three dimensional, instead of just a mass of wires and metal leaves.
