So this is the first large rat sculpture that I have shipped aaaaand I am sorry to say he did not fair well through the shipping process at all.
I did spent a lot of time making him though so I still want to share him with you. We can just say that this is the "prototype" of the AMAZING sculpture that I will be making of Kricket in the future!
I have plans to improve on the structural sturdiness of certain parts of the armature and I plan on obscenely wrapping in bubble wrap for shipping. I am very interested in know how to best ship sculptures though, so advise is welcome.
In the end I did learn a lot making this guy and I hope to continually improve.
Materials used: aluminum foil. wire. glass beads. polymer clay. acrylic paint. pearl ex powder. fishing line. wool.
More sculptures by me...
