Kurve: Rock Outcroppings (take 2)

I decided to redo the rock outcroppings in the cut because I was not happy with how the first attempt worked out.  This time I worked horizontal strata into the plaster mix with a small chisel. I pretty much just hold the chisel horizontally, make a shallow cut into the plaster, and chip away a small amount of material, place the next cut parallel to the previous cut, and keep going ...

Within minutes I get a much more satisfying rock texture (left and middle) than what I had before (right). This looks much more like the sedimentary rock I wanted to represent here.
