Project Glukkon: Body

The body is basically finished. Paper mache now covers the basket-like chest. It resembles a dress-makers dummy - and for good reason: the plan is to drape it with clothing. Since the figure is top-heavy I made a gear-shaped platform of plywood for stability.

Project Glukkon: Body

The body is coming along nicely! I cut cross-sections of styro-foam and attached these to the spine, then wove cardboard strips into a kind of basket using hot glue. This will be covered with paper strip mache for durability. It should serve just fine. Next to do: legs.
