Day of the Tentacle Part 13

Back of the beak now closed off. Have sealed the tentacles as I realised the stuffing could work its way out into the body and leave them all floppy. Now just need to make a body and figure out the best way to attach it.

Day of the Tentacle Part 12

Beakenation has been completed. Have recycled some flat foam sheets that came with Malifaux packaging for support. Seems to be holding up quite well - ring support is also holding firm. Wiring on the legs is not as firm as I would like, the aluminium sculpting wire is definately a trade off of strength for lightness and non corrosion. Given main material is wool felt can't afford to have any kind of wire that might cause staining further down the track.  Will probably have to use wires to suppprt tentacles when it is displayed.
