I started the armatures for a 32 feathered headdress yesterday, today I tried to get started with the wax feathers.. Managed to get three blanks for the Chief's Feathers, that will be in the front center of the Headdress... Managed to get on of them done so you can see how I do it. I'll be working on Sunday.. Hate doing that but the deadline is rapidly approaching to get this piece in the Gallery...

I started the armatures for a 32 feathered headdress by cutting up Bailing Wire... I've decided that I'll be making them out of wax due to the light weight of the wax...

Today, worked on the Trade Blanket around the waist, of the warrior. He has wind pushing from behind, so through the folds created by the wind's actions, I try to capture a moment in time, that will also complement the figure. Creating the story.

Started on the warrior's legs again. Just roughing them in, then I start to fill between his legs where the Robe will be. I need to fill the area in with foam. Can't have that much vacant space under the blanket that will be sculpted next, so I fill the area with Taxidermy Foam.
