The Three Wise Men sculptures are finally done.
It was really fun using so many different materials in this project. I also used images and materials from a lot of different cultures. The turban photos I used for reference were worn by men in Afghanistan, the robes came (sort of) from old drawings of Persian Zoroastrian priests, the sandals are Persian, Arabian and North African, and I used ribbons from Turkey and Italy. Whew!
In spite of all the experiments I made you wade through in this video series, this project really wasn’t all that complicated. As soon as I have a new blog post with screen shots (of just the steps that actually worked, no experiments or do-overs) I’ll post a link to here. I’ll also send out a notice to my subscribers, so if you haven’t signed up yet, you can do that here.
