I was looking at some props on HauntProject.com, and I ran across a paper mache gargoyle done by Vic. You can see it here on his website: Halloween Zombie. I decided that I wanted mine to look like Goliath, the leader of the Gargoyle clan in Disney's animated series, Gargoyles, for my Halloween party.
More usage of pool noodle.
I beefed up the tail by adding some rolled up cardboard to the top of the tail, then tapering it about halfway down the tail. Then I took the WonderCutter and shaved off the pool noodle until it was tapered to the end of the tail. I secured it all with more duct tape.
I cut another piece of styrofoam for the other hand and taped it to the end of that arm and then taped it to the box.
This is the head so far. It's a styrofoam wig head with Great Stuff all over it. I'll be carving it when it's fully dried.
I got the tail all wrapped with paper mache now.
I used some scrap pieces of pool noodle for fingers and toes. I cut then into lengthwise pieces a little longer than my own fingers, then notched them in 3 places like a knuckle so they can bend.
Then I glued them on and paper mached them.
The left one in the picture is the foot with the toes curling over the base. The toes and fingers on these two didn't look right when I finished, but I am not concerned with perfection today. :)
The rear foot.
For the head, I carved off some of the Great Stuff to make it shaped more like a head and face. I stuck a piece of PVC into it and secured it to the frame.
More to come as I progress...
