Making a statue ...
I've been itching to build an Annubis statue, and our new house has an 11' high garage. Wouldn't it be awesome to have an Annubis in the corner as the TOTs come strolling in? My kid actually came home with a 9" high Annubis yesterday from a museum and it would be the perfect model for this project.
But, how should I build it? My first thought is to use PVC for the bones and pool noodles to flesh it out. The noodles would need extra foam in places to mimic the contours of regular arms & legs, and I guess I could then wrap the flesh in chicken wire, fiber/drywall tape, and then monster mud it. Does this sound like a plan?
Adding extra foam is something I can't quite figure out. What would be the best way to add some bulk so that it looks right and will stick?
