I want to make a statue of myself working in my garden, how.
I am working on a backyard flower garden, follow the link below. I want to make a statue of myself leaning on a shovel and maybe the guy that helped me with a lot of the heavy work.
I was in a train museum in Galveston, Texas several years ago that had several white concrete or fiberglass statues. When you set down beside them they would talk to you. I am not sure how they were made. Also we stopped at a really big statue, I think it is of Sam Houston someplace on Interstate 45. They showed how it was constructed.
I want to work life-size. What I would like to do is stand in the position and apply something to my clothes that would make them stiff. then I would have them cut off me, them reassembly the form and make it stronger by putting fiberglass or cement on the inside.
I have considered fiberglass resin or maybe plaster of paris. I have some experience with fiberglass and cement, again check out the pictures on my website that is listed below. (My Garden and SpaceShip Chair)
The faces I can mold with the compound that dentists use for dentures.
I would really like to hear your suggestions.
