If you click on the link, it should take you to the process of making two cheetahs from Lion King for a local school production. I don’t know if they were even used but the darling daughter and I had a lot of fun figuring out how to make them and then making them. The faces are particularly precious – they have so much personality! Darling daughter painted them and she did an amazing job!
We each sculpted a face and then covered them in plaster wraps (the kind used to wrap broken bones.) And then we set the faces on the bodies that were made out of chicken wire, wood dowels, shop towels, poster board, as well as plaster wraps. Check out the pictures if you’re interested in seeing how we made it happen.
