I feel like I'm going into too much detail, but I don't know what to leave out.
I have several large steel washers that I use as patterns to cut these shapes out of black felt. I buy the eyelashes a gross at a time and cut them to length.
The zebra, deer,moose and impala have eyelashes, the cheetah and the wart hog do not.
By 2:00 o'clock I had gotten this far, and was tired of working on the zebra.
I had cut out the hardboard backs for them on Monday.
I cut the foam even with the edge of the shell, and cut the removed piece into chunks that will be saved for the next pour.
I then attached to backs to each sculpture with masking tape and made any adjustments to them so that they would agree in shape.
I then applied several layers of paper mache over the back and edges and put them out to dry.
I finished that by 3:30 PM, so I did a little bit more on the zebra before calling it a day.
Come back tomorrow and see what's next.
