The Rough Crane Maquette
Here's the final crane maquette. Around 10" x 14". After some thinking, I decided to wrap some old cotton socks with foil for the body. I then used a rolling pin to make thin layers of clay to surround it. It reduced the weight and use of clay. The legs are made from a close hanger painted black. Paper was used for the curls and pointing wing. It's all constructed from several separate pieces and is now ready to serve as my reference for my next painting. Two more maquettes to finish and then photo time.
