This project was light on preconception. I mostly made it up as I went along. Strap in, kids, this is going to be a bumpy ride!
Step 1: Get Some (stuff)
needles, stickpins, strong thread, scissors, treated canvas, wire, and duct tape. And paint, of course.
The first thing to do was decide the general size of the hands that I wanted, and cut them out. I added a couple of other hunks of foam to rough out the shape of the palm, but that turned out not to be really necessary. Bear with me, we will figure this out as we go along.
