Some members might have seen my EL-wire animal head masks (I brought some to the Maker Festival in station hall back in March):
My most recent is this parrot head, which I made last year:
This year I am, as the meme goes, Drawing the Rest of the Parrot:
I think I can improve on that final “furled” pose.
Getting a bit big to work on at home now, so expect to see this lot in the space over the coming weeks…
Still to make:
- Backpack attachment for inverters and battery
- Body feathers
- Tail feathers
- Claws (ideally articulated so I can grasp things with them)
I’m planning on using nylon thread to sew the EL-wire onto the edges of the corex feathers, stabilised with hot glue. Any bright ideas for other ways to do this welcome!
Deadline: 22nd August, when I’m taking it to a festival.
