“Reproducing Organic Shapes”

Thibra Classroom

An exploration of reproducing organic shapes: claws, bone, scales, etc. for Cosplay/Costume/Art/Fun. With the application of simple sculpting techniques, see how the very friendly plastic, Thibra, can be shaped into custom Dragon scales and whatever else you can imagine! (Advisory: Limits of imagination are not covered in this class). Then see how one original scale can be easily and quickly reproduced with a custom-made mold. Next, a small round or oval shape of EVA foam is covered and scales applied. After painting a webbing with clips is added and covered with a bit of fur. Tada, Dragon Scale Armor!
