Never too old to learn!

I've been playing with needle felting faces and heads. While I was about it, I decided it was time I learnt to make a full wire armature.  Say hello to Gerry Antimony, superannuated and unsuccessful rock star. He is stuck in a time warp and even holds on to what remains of his "mullet"!

I didn't give him enough chin, I'm getting better. I struggled with making the armature and frankly his insides are a bit of a mess, but The Boss bought me a bigger set of pliers and wire cutters and showed me how to do it using a workshop vice. The next one should be much better!

This strange fellow will be the next one off the workbench:

I don't know who he is yet, but he will be wearing quite regal robes in earth colours.
