I think I'm done with this. Found a little time over Spring break. It needs to be buffed--hopefully that will even out the sunken areas in the hair.

I believe the cracking was caused by either wood grain or uneven application. I had a pretty makeshift temperature control system, and I neither kept the gesso at a consistent viscosity, nor at a consistent temperature. Probably a combination of the two.

Thanks, all, for the kind words and encouragement.
