Week 8- Forming our sculptures

This week we continued on our Giacometti inspired sculptures by wrapping them in foil.  Wrapping the wire in form is an important step in forming our figures.   We gave the bodies a bit more girth and depth and secured the legs to the base by forming feet.  This step gave the figures more life and character, as you can see from the photos...

Next week we'll wrap the figures in newspaper and a substance called Paverpol.  This step will make them hard and sturdy.  See you then!!


  1. Hilary,
    These are awesome! Evan would have loved doing these last year in Art Enrichment! We'll have to give that one a try here at home!

  2. Wow! A comment!!!
    If you do this project, don't use Paverpol! It's pricey and paper mache would work just as well. :)

  3. What kind of wiring did you use?
