I gave him a wash of Minwax wood stain to add a little
warmth and "aging" to his wings and body.
I also added paper clay to his forearms and began
constructing his hands with wire for the fingers.
(the wrists look articulated but are not)
The arms have a wide range of motion for positioning.
I am planning on "de-constructing" the neck where it
meets the shoulders... to give a more natural appearance
when turned to the side.
I have been working on a metal mesh over-lay that
fits like a jacket... but I'm not too keen on the way it
looks at the moment. Will have to rethink that one!
