Stage#7

1. When all the limbs are build back up again, the wiring is placed into the wood wool body form. Because the wool has been spun so tightly the wiring can be perfectly secured within the form, and will allow for bending the limbs into the desired position.

2. The skin is then sown shut, and because the feathers were still slightly damp from the spin-dryer it is easy to create stitching that pulls itself to the inside of the body. Once the cut has been shut I get the hair dryer and fluff everything back up again. The down is so tightly packed that it’ll just interlock over the area that has just been stitched, leaving it unnoticeable even to trained eyes.
