Bearik Estrada in progress
I'm taking a break from the fumes of fiberglass resin and bondo to post my progress on Bearik Estrada. After cutting limbs and resetting the jaw I reinforced the legs and arms with wire mesh covered with aluminum foil. The foil allows me to fiberglass over the modified parts without wasting too much resin.
I the built the mouth, teeth and nose out of A+B epoxy putty. This stuff dries to a rock hard finnish in about two hours-great stuff! I worked from a couple of quick sketches I did from CHiPs episodes on Hulu.
After the A+B putty was dry I began adding texture using automobile body filler. Working fast I used pieces of straw to add the texture.
