Fabric i have chosen to do my Dodo's legs with. Needle and thread, glue stick and fake fur fabric, (op shop, inside of a jacket). This was cut into strips, glue stick on the wrong side of the fabric, then wrapped around the legs starting from the toe tips and up.
Glued into place. I will keep wrapping until i have the thickness that i am happy with.
Underside of beak. The beak is going to be in a red vinyl fabric. I will stretch, pin, draw where i want to cut, then using a fabric glue and needle and thread put it into place. I will be trying to make this as smooth as possible where it needs to be but at this point i can also start to add character, smile lines and facial creases and tucks, things that will bring it to life.
This is the right way view of the Dodo.
