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.
Then I paint all the different areas before giving it a wash of stain to add detail and depth.
Step 6: Final Step.
Final step is to add fake fur to the wolf and place it in the yard.
