Section 8: Fleshing Out the Figure
Once you have the basic low density cage which resembles the approximate shape of the figure, you move into the general build of adding the majority of the wire. Its important, that you don’t add too much wire too early or you may struggle to add wire later as its difficult to pass wire through a dense figure. Over the whole build you need to manage a wire density approach path, so the figure becomes dense and difficult to pass wire through, just as the figure reaches its final shape.
This section cover:
- Adding wire in increasing volumes at higher tensions through the build
- Shaping the figure and managing proportions as the build progresses
- Advise on how to shape and manage particular features
- Adding muscle definition to the figure
