making of antlers by Jolien-Rosanne making of antlers by Jolien-Rosanne
My project the last weeks. Thought it might be interesting for you all to see progress pictures.
I wanted this set of antlers to have a certain shape and to be light. So I completely hand sculpted this item. Starting with a base of iron wire covered in foam. Then I carved the foam into shape and covered it with light w
eight clay (L'Artista clay). 
After sanding and fine tuning I covered the entire thing in worbla to give it strength (cause we always bump into stuff with our pretty  ) 
I love how this piece has the shape and feel of real antlers with having only a fracture of the weight.

This is a cool alternate way from wearing real antlers! Sadly real antlers don't want to stay on your head(imagine having 2 or more kilograms of bone on your head!), unless they were physically attached to you or incredibly small!

Hi! These antlers are amazing! I love the paint job. I am planning on making similar sized antlers for a costume and was wondering what you did to get these to stay on a person's head, are they attached to a headband or something?
