Cardboard Armature for Giant Nuff Bird Sculpture

Cross profile frame for the giant bird sculpture head in cardboard.

Following the lessons from Laurence Vallières’ Online Course for Cardboard Sculpting, I’m attempting to make a giant version of my Nuff bird. This will be the armature I trowell concrete paper clay over the top. I started with a ruff cross structure of the front and side view, then added strips of cardboard to form the ruff shape. It was quick to build out the form this way and I was able to recycle a few Amazon boxes in the process. Hot glue is a craft girl’s best friend.
