HOLY HELL This turned out bigger than I thought!
Base was initially made out with cardboard, then expanding foamed around it to give it some shape. Papermache'd around that after carving, and after drying, covered it in a thin layer of paperclay. Used plastimake
to create the skull at the back as well as to hold the headband and wires in place. Details put on with craft foam then painted accordingly with a base layer of grey primer spraypaint, and normal acrylics were used for more effect. The chains are just these cheap bird toy chains from here
, spray painted with grey and added a light layer of silver paint.
