monstermash - Thanks! It's been fun making the props and really cool to hopefully have it all come together.
On to more props. Well, the sarcophagus went off with less work than I had anticipated. So, I decided to go for broke and make a couple Anubis guards for my tomb entrance on the big stage.
I have a big problem with trying to free-hand everything and I'm certainly more gas than brake. So, here's the first photo of me sketching the outline out on a piece of foam. I cut that out and then traced it on the other side so that I'd get 2 out of the one sheet.
Then I cut out all of the pieces just like I did for the sarcophagus. I drew the plan on the foam and then traced that out on a piece of paper and cut out each piece. Here are all the pieces waiting for the glue to dry.
Once the glue was dry, I sanded everything down.
and you're done:
I made the hand really large balls so I can drill through and add spears. We'll see what happens. I have to get the main back-drop done and then we can focus on smaller details. However, I'm hoping to finish this week ...
