Initial sketchbook work.
Built on top of a simple store-bought one.
Wire beak & arched eyebrows attached, then glued into place with epoxy resin.
Beak covered & filled out with loose-weave material to give shape & structure.
Covered in paper mache!
Start of the ‘crest’ which will lead into my hair-style…
Going to wait for it to fully dry overnight, then cover in a base coat (or few) of white, then decorate with beautiful colours and magical things 🙂 I still haven’t decided what *else* to wear though…
