I started construction of the Cannibal headpiece but have slowed down in the creativity department. I am now experimenting with different types of dry / plastic floral arrangement pieces for the left side of the headpiece. I know from the movie that the prop weenies used palm tree parts but I have not been able to find a half way decent piece from any palm tree in the LA area....and believe me I have been looking!!! They are always too dried out and disintegrate!
I am also replacing many of the polymer clay items with hand carved foam pieces. This will make it much lighter on the head considering the thing now ways about three pounds. Working with the foam is so much easier since you can carve the pieces using a pair of sharp scissors. Foam his difficult to paint!!!
Some WIP images!
Well it is time to head back into the Captain Jack Sparrow workshop and continue with this final and most difficult Cannibal Jack prop!!!!
