Yes, we named the apple head. *L*
Here's what Fredrick looked like after soaking for 24 hours.
And again after hanging for two days. It's really flattening out. I guess it needs to be carved much deeper. It's also a lot darker than I expected. I noticed, after removing it from the soak, that the baking soda had settled to the bottom. Could that be making a difference? I wonder.
