Today- not to plan

Started today off with good intentions and a plan of what I wanted to get done but was getting ready this morning and an 'obturator related accident' happened so I had to get that sorted so a lot of time was gone there and couldnt make it into college. But once I was back- it was back on with the paper mache and my love is so dying for that! The honeymoon period with paper mache is over. It's taking ages now.

Here is very rough diagram of how the model is being made- hence 'very rough'. This is the one for Sofia...

And here is some of the making so far- just looks like a bunch of eggs with legs right now!

The very start and then the polystyrene egg with leg armature fitted...

Bertie and Sofia

Sofia body- more shaped

All 3 together but not finished building up body shape yet...

So as you can see- they arent looking too great at the moment and still lots to do! Which I have right here next to me to carry on with...and with that I shall!
