Series Project 1

For my first series, I sculpted a figure that I have seen in one of my nightmares. I used wire, hot glue, super glue, black paint and orange paint. I began by gluing a wire base to the foam board I painted and began to construct the skeleton of legs out of heavy duty wire. I then wrapped thin wire around the thick wire to make the form of the figure. I continued this for the whole figure. After that I painted the wire black and added orange paint to the hands, feet, and tip of the head to symbolize fire. The wire gave me excellent texture and I was able to incorporate depth by creating a 3D figure. One thing I struggled with during this project was getting the figure to be stable. If I could go back and change something I would probably use another material that is easier to construct with.
