Headless

The body needed armatures, which included a laundry bottle, popcorn jar, paper towel roll, lots of aluminum foil. Then all was coated with exterior plaster. Finally, layers of Apoxie Clay provided the textures, details and durability. The finished sculpture was then painted with metallic paints that include real bronze and gold.
