Back in the backyard, I started with some fresh plastic pipe and carefully followed the curve of my pattern.

Heating and bending PVC is a cheap way to sculpt, but it might release dangerous fumes, so I can't recommend anyone try this technique without consulting a chemist.



The top half nearly complete.

Each lens hole was about 9" across.


The pattern helped, but the result was a little flat. A little more work was required so that they would curve a bit across the front.

It took me about 2 hours to get the glasses to this point. I was pleased with their shape, and they looked great on the head. They even sat in place on the nose.


I started the paper mache.

I should write a detailed how-to for paper mache. For now, I just want to say that paper mache is really cheap and pretty easy. I use flour and water for the glue.


Applying dozens of wet strips to the front. It can be hard to really see the curves of a wireframe surface, so it was nice to see the skin emerge as I added paper.




Covering all the holes with criss-crossing strips, it can be hard to tell if any thin spots need more paper.

After about an hour, my bowl of paste was empty, so I quit for the night.
