Introduction: Zombie Wolf

A static Wolf and Red Riding Hood for Halloween.

Step 1: Sub Structure.

I started with a skeleton made out of PVC pipe and trim board heated and bent into the shapes needed. These are glued and screwed together with a PVC pipe support structure inside

Step 2: Flesh It Out With Foam.

Extruded foam is then glued over and around the skeleton and spray foam is used to fill in where needed.

Step 3: Carve and Add Detail.

I carve the foam with a hot wire cutter and sculpt it with a soldering iron and files.

Step 4: Weather Proof and Add Texture.

The whole piece is coated with drylok and cheese cloth to smooth out and add back texture to simulate skin and tissue.

Step 5: Painting.

Thank you. That makes the effort all the worth while.

I just really enjoyed seeing this!

It looks exactly like things I've done: a big old monstrosity of a creation in progress taking up space in the garage, being made on a makeshift table that's really an old door, walls lined with shelves full of paint and stuff, etc.

And in the end you've created some neat thing that impresses anyone that sees it. It's just so much fun!

The only problem is finding a place to store it after Halloween... ;)

Great stuff. I really hope you'll share all of your projects here.
