This is the materials used in building the Egret.. heavy wire that we split. Tinfoil. Two styrofoam balls. White T-shirt and Paverpol clay..
Betty already had the leaf platforms to screw the rods into for his legs.
The we connected the two balls to form his body.
We used a thin copper pipe to form his neck and shape of his head.
We then slide a smaller styrofoam ball on for his head.
We took the wire and connected it around the balls and started stuffing crumpled up tin foil around the balls to get the body shape we wanted.
Heres the Egret with his basic tin covered body... just waiting for his
And here he is....
