trying to get the shape the way I want it
This is the "snake for me" that I started a few nights ago. I want his head to be more generic, not so boa constrictor-y. Not cartoony, but definitely not real either.
how I left it the other night
Today I secured him to the wire grid with some masking tape so he wouldn't be so tippy to work on.
a "duh!" moment -- take some photos -- this was the fourth attempt at a new shape
okay...I think I like this one
looking down onto it, as it climbs up towards me
putting the masking tape over the aluminum foil over the paper balls and first boa-ish shaped plaster cloth head
smoothing out the masking tape, trying not to push too hard
he's about 74" long
I think I will leave this for a few hours (or until tomorrow) to make sure this is the shape and I plaster cloth it.
