Barracuda cont…

Ok…so before I get to far along I needed to think about how he will be hung. By taking some 14 gauge wire and making a loop and then bending into a hook shape and inserting into back I will make two hanging points. These were each hot glued and glue cloth applied around them for strength….

While I have Mr. Cuda on it’s backside I will apply some glue cloth to the back of the head section where it was cut open to create the jaw. I first hot glued cereal box cardboard along cut before cover with glue cloth. You can also see one of the hanger hooks in the image below…the other one is down at the tail end…

Now I will flip it over and work on the eye lids and the gill area before applying the rest of the entire head with glue cloth to create a wrinkly, wretched skin… With an over night dry in front of a fan I will be ready to tackle the tail…

Stay tuned for more wicked barracuda building from the Stray Artist!
