Section 6: Wire Technique
Its worth spending some time explaining how to prepare and apply the wire. The most common mistake that people make is to simply wind wire around and around the skeleton in a bid to flesh out the figure as fast as possible. Doing it that way actually causes problems with managing proportions, consumes far more wire than is needed and ironically takes much longer.
This sections teaches you about:
- Making up multiple strands to apply wire up to 8 times faster
- Routing the wire around the figure to create flowing lines and manage proportions
- How to create concave and convex shares when forming the figure
