The beginnings of my armor project made of Foss shape.
Modeling the gorget, at the wee hours in the night!
Armor under $20. This is the Inspiration from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A fancy pants gorget! Can I recreate something similar? I posed this challenge to myself!
Elle is made of 1/4 and 1/2 inch foam, fleece, yarn and lots of love. By far, one of the most difficult things I have ever made...lots of hours... she was completed at 3am after a weekend of 10/12 hr. tech days. she's all kinds of special...
No process shots of Elle (A lot of the work I did on her was when she was inside out. Behind her is a mouse puppet turned inside out as an example to the class about how to construct the puppet with foam).
Foam project preliminary sketch. I chose to make a puppet. This is a preliminary sketch of Elle, inspired by my (then 1-1/2 year old) niece Danielle.
Once the non-hardening clay was molded, I heated Wonderflex to mold around the clay facial structure. This is the Wonderflex in process.
Arlecchino mask detail. I used maroon, yellow and brown paint and elastic to finish it off.
Commedia Mask! This is Arlecchino (Harlequin) modeled after the image to the right. No premade masks or materials provided.
