Sausages

A quick afternoon project: there were already several batting-stuffed muslin sausage links already in stock. I coated them in tissue paper to create a crackle-y skin. They were then painted and coated with FEV.

These sausages were made from sections of a thick cardboard tube. One end was stuffed with blue foam, and the other a wad of newspaper. The whole thing was covered in masking tape, applied unevenly to create the wrinkly skin.  The foam was coated with epoxy for rigidity, and after being painted with acrylics it was finished with FEV.
