Attack of the Plastic Clones!

Click here to find out how to make a sculpture of yourself out of plastric wrap (clingfilm) and packing tape. Read the comments at the bottom too for ideas, and also for caution about covering yourself in plastic (best to do this outside when it’s not warm, and not all at once).
You could use this technique to make a mannequin to make clothes on, or to make a scarecrow, sculpture, scary Halloween ghost, and loads of other things!
You could also make moulds of loads of different everyday items like trees, lamposts, candlesticks etc
For examples of this technique used in art, see here and here. Obviously, do not cover animals or babies/children in clingfilm (however much they annoy you!) – you’ll have to sculpt these ones from scratch…
Have fun 🙂
