portrait three pt2

Portrait three was finished less than an hour ago. I can’t decide whether he’s an old-fashioned butcher just missing his apron or whether he’s out for a Sunday stroll to check out the local talent. Either way, his hat-holding hand took several practices until I was satisfied enough to settle for the last one. The straw boater hat was made from three layers of fine loose weave fabric, moulded over a small bottle cap, stiffened with fabric stiffener before trimming the brim to size and adding the ribbon band.

    His hat worked out very well. I think he looks like he is a member of a singing quartet.

    This is so great! I feel really inspired. Love how you let the hand leave the two dimensional

      I’m chuffed to be told that I’ve inspired someone else and to read your comment on my birthday was even better!
      The wired hands are challenging to make but I have ideas on how I might make them even more life-like.
