Stubborn Troll

This week I proceeded to continue on my troll.  She is being very difficult and therefore not done yet.  It didn't matter which way I posed her, she just didn't like it.  So Yesterday I started a chair for her.

The wire armature took quite a while to build.  After many hours of bending, poking and even bleeding the frame was done.

I started covering it with upholstery batting.  That is a job all in it self.  Today I covered the whole thing with pantyhose and then sculpted it.

I had forgotten how much work all that is.  Posed the troll in the chair and she's "thinking"  about it.

Next I will paint the chair using Acrylic Paints and Gel medium.
