Foaming the Armature

Since we last spoke, I have finished the chicken wire cage assembly and have begun to fill the cage with foam.

I use Great Stuff foam and shoot it in through the mesh of the chicken wire. Here is what I use.

Remember, this stuff will expand so don’t put in too much. These three images were taken about ten minutes after filling.

I allowed the foamed armature 24 hours to cure and the images below show the results.

Like I said don’t over fill the chicken wire cage. However, fear not if you do. There is an answer if you do:

There is always your handy-dandy Swiss Army Knife. Use it wisely and the results will amaze you.

And so after a bit of delicate cosmetic surgery, this where the Great Horned Owl armature is as the sun sets on Sugarcreek Ohio.

Although I have been pursuing my art in one form or another all of my life, it is still an adventure, and one that I have never tired of.
