Phoenix

I have a couple of days before I can start the things I have been planning, got to do something.

After I did some work with paper on the “space flowers” I decided to go bigger and get more paper, A lot more paper.

I started out with some Finfoam…

Done my shopping again

then I got to work and soon I had this

The start of something

That is the base. At this point I had very little idea about the next stage which…

was pretty easy, just putting peaces together one by one.

You can almost see the wings

After I had the bottom wired I tried to imagine the wings.

End of the day

When I got the wings in my head and the day was over I had this. I am very anxious to go back tomorrow and do more, more, more.

Over the month the big bird has been slowly building up.

First I had to figure out the wing size and shape.

After I had it figured I made the frames for the wings.

And then covered the whole thing with paper.

The next step will take a lot of time. I am going to cover the whole thing with paper. Feathers, lots of feathers and ash on the base.

After a huge amount of work I will eventually get to paint it and make it look hot.
