I wanted to see how the piece would look, in different postions, when finished.
If you look at the enlargement for the second pic, you can see the strings suspending the piece and pencils keeping the string from sliding off.

You can see where I fattened the tail, vertically, by taping on some thin sections that had been previously sawed-off.

An eye-hole has been added in the second pic. A large glass marble will be set in there, later for the pupil; and clay used to fill in rest of eye.


Time to start slingin' paper!

In the three following pics; You can see how I build a bridge around difficult curves, fighting gravity and lack of grip on styrofoam.

Minor disaster!
When preparing to leave the studio for the night I backed my bike into the workhorse and knocked the whole form over.
The jaw that I had stayed an extra hour to do, is gone. You can see clumps of soggy paper on the floor.
No big deal. I'll fix it next time.

If you are a regular reader, then you'll recognise this painting. I haven't much looked at it, or done anything major with it in a while.
Last night I extended the red background around Mrs. Crack-Penguin; this suggested some other possibilities, but we'll see.
