For materials I used a box, paper mache, faux fur (hair), paint, paint sticks (frame for glasses), electrical tape, chicken wire, wire cutters, masking tape, wiffel balls (eyes), wood glue, and went to a thrift store for the outfit.
Step 2: Foundation
To start I found a box big enough to fit over my head and rest on my shoulders. A box works well because the basic shape of Carls head is square. I covered the sides and top with chicken wire leaving a round edge for Carls big chin. Chicken wire works well because it is easy to shape and mold plus its strong. Then I covered everything in masking tape because the paper mache wont stick to the wire but works well with the tape. leave a hole for the nose, ears, and a ridge across his face for the eye brows. Be careful when cutting the chicken wire, sharp edges can form and may prick you.
Step 3: Ears
I molded the ears out of chicken wire and attached them to the sides of the head. To attach them I just spun the excess wire around the wire on the side of the head like bread ties. Cover it in masking tape.
Step 4: Nose
just like the ears, I made the nose out of chicken wire and attached it to the wire around the box where his nose should be. I spun the excess wire around the cage like bread ties again. The nose should be oval and once its attached just squash it down a little bit. Then cover it in masking tape.
Step 5: Details
I drew out where his eyes and wrinkles should be using a pen. For the wrinkles and eye brow ridge I took strips of masking tape and rolled them up into cords with the sticky side facing outside. Then I placed them on the wrinkle lines and eye brow ridge to give the details some depth.
