Shooting Clay Pigeons



Yeah... I know bad joke... right? This is the sculpt for the pigeon puppets for the upcoming production of "The Producers" at Jamestown Community College. Since we have to actually create 10+ individual puppets, it's worth the extra effort to create a mold and mass produce these rats with wings.

I'll be creating a mold out of good ol' plaster of paris in two halves. The final puppet will be latex and flexible. No wings yet as they will be added later as part of the inner mechanism of the puppet. A little more smoothing of the body and we should be ready to create the mold.

In case anyone is wondering... this guy's body is part styrofoam with clay on top of it. I took a half-sphere of green floral foam and glued it to a regular white styro cone and then v-cut the point of the cone off to form the part of the pigeon which befouls statues.

Interesting work space. Are those birds wireless enabled?

This is cool! I have a friend who would love a pigeon, as simple as this.
