Alberto Giacometti is known for his tall and thin figures made of bronze. In these pictures, notice how the thin, elongated arms and legs of the figures are unrealistic. Think of how you can add some unrealistic features to your sculpture to make it unique!
- Bendy Wire
- Aluminum Foil
Step 1 :
Decide how large you want the figures to be and start with one long piece of bendy wire! Fold the wire in half. Grab the end and twist 4-5 times to create a loop.
Step 2 :
Fold and twist the wire again to make an arm! Leave a loop in the end. It's for the hand!
Step 3 :
Leaving another loop for the torso, twist again for 3-4 times. Create another loop below the torso for hips and twist it again!
Step 4 :
Fold both of the legs in half and cut off the parts you don't like! Cutting wire could be dangerous, so make sure to ask for help from adults.
Step 5 :
Finish the leg with the same process we used for the arm. Don't forget to leave a loop in the end! That's for the foot!
Step 6 :
Tear tinfoils into pieces and scrunch up those pieces into the wire!
Make a pose! You can also add more elements to the sculpture, such as basketball, just like in the image below! Check out the other pages to see what other materials you can use when creating your sculpture!
