Wolves – in the making

The 3 wolf heads were designed for a halloween event Scary Walks in the Woods held in Belleek woods, Ballina, Co Mayo as part of the Samhain Amhain festival. The heads were designed to be larger than life and wearable by a carrier in a manner that the head would stoop over the carriers head and shoulders to give the stooped and loping effect of a wolf. The main structure was built up using woven and stapled, light plastic strips over a solid plasticboard structure. A double layer of gauze and PVA was applied over the woven plastic head, with the gums and teeth being finished off with flesh coloured paper mache and varnish.
