Antennas Make the Alien

Adding antennas to my alien head.

This project started with no clear direction other than testing the concrete paper clay over various forms. Now I’m looking back at a creature that is telling me he needs a set of antennas. I often feel my pieces tell me what they want next, and it is my job as their humble creator to oblige their requests. The Antenna was made from 1/4-20 carriage bolts and 1″ styrofoam balls. Carefully inserting the bolt thru the foam ball, then I drilled two small holes in the head and secured nuts washers. This entire armature was coated in concrete paper clay and blended the transition to the head.
