The Pirate, based on my dad, starts to take shape. I've painted the silicone skin and hand made a pair of eyes.
Out in the shop, the entire scene is coming together. The snakes have their skins and the fiberglass gold pile is getting it's treatment. We hand glued 3,600 plastic coins!
The Brass vase you see there was vital to the scene. Our air hoses ran up through it and into the Pirate's hip keep them hidden from the viewer. His rope was very thin and starting to fray. It was a nice effect.
