making a sellotape figure

1. Wrapping my friend in clingfilm.  She was remarkably calm despite the wrap getting near to her eyes and mouth.

One hand was made mitten-like, the other was wrapped in very thin tape so we could make separate fingers.

I intend this figure to be one a a few that hang from the ceiling of the Chapel at next year’s show of puppet-inspired work. I will be looking into the possibility of lighting them from within with LED lights and of creating elongated, and hybrid casts too.
